"People's personalities, like buildings, have various facades, some pleasant to view, some not." ~ François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
The area around Prospect Park has not always been either a safe or beautiful neighborhood. For several years now, new life has been moving in; renovation and restoration of these beautiful old brownstones is ongoing. The colors and ornate details bring character and grace back to Brooklyn and the wide variety of style adds a touch of spice. Sprinkle in the small but beautiful entry garden plots and you have a wonderful place to live. I want to go back again in the spring, perhaps the fall, and .... yes, the winter with snow on the ground would be beautiful too.
