Today I headed to the West Hills of Brooklyn. It was hot and I didn’t want to deal with long waits for lights to change or construction all in very sunny, exposed areas. So I stayed closer to home and went looking for shade, often crossing the street several times to be in it.

Several intersections were marked up with the street names and years also marked. It looks like they will push the sidewalks out more? Or  make things ADA accessible? I’m not really sure. I am curious about the need for such work on sidewalks that are in good shape and are pretty old (1912 mostly). I hope we don’t lose the super cool metal rails that protect some of these sidewalks. Such great history.

I dig the bright light green of new growth.
