Brooklyn Monday #3

At the intersection of Flatbush Avenue, the Eastern Parkway, and Prospect Park West at the northern corner of Prospect Park, sits this triumphal arch, shot from the hot roof of a tour bus at mid-day. It looks better in black and white.

The museum, below, would be worth a visit at any time. Their Centre for Feminist Art has a permanent exhibit of Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party.” We stopped at a street vendor outside the Museum to buy water and for some of the passengers to use the Museum facilities.

A quote for the ages:

Until I visit again, this is my last post from the great city of New York. Other Brooklyn posts are #1 and #2.

These pictures were all taken from the top of a bus, in late morning, on a HOT bright day.  We passed a  restaurant I would have tried, had we stopped, and a bar, which I would have passed up.  We also got to see the brownstone houses for which Brooklyn is well known. If I were to live in such a huge metropolis, these houses would suit me fine!

Brooklyn Monday 1

To finish off my Monday posts on New York City I have a few photos of Brooklyn which I’ll spread over three weeks.  It just doesn’t have the same ring as Manhattan Monday, of which there were 49.

The East River Ferry – previous post here –  from the fall of 2014, also stopped a couple of times on the Brooklyn side of the East River.

We made a Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour of Brooklyn in June of 2015 and stayed on the bus the whole time – except to hop off for water and a comfort break.  These two photos were taken from the top of the bus when it stopped to give us a view of Manhattan from just off the Manhattan bridge.
