Cast Iron and Castaway Bikes: Blizzard in Brownstone Brooklyn
We got up (well, "we" is not quite the right word, but I finally did see the wisdom of getting up early and getting out into the SNOW!) and walked from Brooklyn Heights to Prospect Park at about 6.30. The snow was falling, the streetlights were still on, and hardly anyone was out yet. You could barely see down the block and the wind was pretty intense, but it was a great walk.




Hicks Street, 7am State Street
Dean Street
Flatbush and Dean, 8am
Carlton and Bergen Streets

Great shots. The lower-right one is almost the Addams Family house. Where is that?

Thanks! That house is at the corner of Carlton and Bergen Streets in Prospect Heights, and if I'm not mistaken, it has a wonderful rock garden around it and in front of it, though it's not terribly apparent in this photo.

Gorgeous photos!

I'm in Seattle right now, I hope I can find my car when I get back!

The good news is you won't have to move it for a while -- I suspect alternate side will be suspsended for most of the week.

Thanks -- we felt bad for the bikes left out in the snow but they sure were pretty.

I like the pictures with the streetlights on.

It was beautiful before the sun came up, but we'd only walked to Cobble Hill when we saw that Starbuck's was open and made a coffee stop. By the time we got back outside the sun was mostly up. Plus there's a not-very-photogenic stretch before we got to a strip of very old houses I'd never noticed before on Dean Street, including that wooden one with the icicles above.
