This afternoon was warm and sunny, so instead of running the perimeter of Prospect Park as planned my running buddy and I did some Brooklyn exploring. After running the Flatbush length of the Park we hung a left and followed Parkside Ave into what we think is Prospect Lefferts Gardens - what a beautiful neighborhood whatever it's called! - and proceeded to zigzag our way through the lovely streets. Some freestanding Victorian homes, some brick attached homes in the style of what one sees in Sunnyside, Queens, and lots of tree-lined streets with cute little front gardens. Appetizing scents wafted from the small roti shops on the major streets, and we saw some sweet old churches here and there. Then we found ourselves in Crown Heights and on more pretty blocks, though many were littered with empty dime bags. Eventually we ended up at the Botanic Gardens, and back at the Park. I'm not sure how far we ended up running, but it was a great little tour on a day when we wanted an excuse to stay out and about.

 

Aaah, Brooklyn.
