Brooklyn, 2013

This weekend we explored the new Greenpoint pierrevisited Saraghina (Axel is a big fan of the pizza crust), checked out the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, had dinner at Parish Hall, and wandered through the Flea.

Thanks to Will's cousin, we also discovered a bit of local family history. Will's maternal grandmother, who was born in 1910, lived at 174 Prospect Place in Park Slope as a child. Fun knowing exactly where the family was rooted in Brooklyn and picturing the area back then...

I found some great pictures of Manhattan and Brooklyn from 1905-1910 here. Amazing!
