BROOKLYN ~ East River State Park

Did everyone enjoy 65 degrees in February today?

I took a little time to enjoy today's balmy weather down by the shore;
The BROOKLYN Shore.  Or, more accurately -

The Brooklyn Waterfront

Once upon a time, along Kent Avenue off North 9th Street,
this portion of the Brooklyn Water Front was furious with industry.
Today, we are far removed from those days when Brooklyn's western shore was busy serving as the mecca for East Coast shipping, freight and manufacturing.  Finally, after decades of neglect, deterioration and dilapidation, major portions of Brooklyn's waterfront are being reclaimed and converted into much needed park and recreation space.  From Red Hook to Greenpoint, Brooklyn's waterfront is slowly but surely being returned to the denizens of Kings County.
