Happy Fourth of July … from Park Slope

As the blogger who took this photo wrote,

Park Slope is known for its brownstones but there are also shingled and clapboard houses lined up side-by-side. Most buildings have stoops and tiny gardens in front.

It’s the dog days of summer, all right – bright sunshine, humidity, lazy dogs and barbecues.

Mark and I had our own little cookout last night on our balcony. Those without balconies can tote their gear to some of the public parks, which have designated areas for grilling.

I think it’s fair to say that there’s no better place to be on July 4th than either Park Slope or Prospect Park. (J.m.h.o.)
