Destination: Dumbo, Brooklyn

Graffiti found on Water Street across from Journey Home Store.

Found on Water Street in a loft, this carousel was renovated by Jane Walentas, too over 20 years to restore. It was built in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and purchased in 1984 by the Walentases at an auction of a defunct Ohio amusement park. It was originally intended for Brooklyn Bridge Park, but was never given a place there.

I was able to witness the Red Hook vendors for the first time, it would be a shame if they got rid of them. They are a part of the culture and livelihood in Red Hook.

Today's destination was Red Hook, the weather was beautiful and we wanted to partake in the "whatsthehook" project. Rather than take the train or bus we decided to walk from our place and back. 8 miles later we came away with some great shots and found some interesting things.

I wouldn't recommend walking down prospect avenue to Smith or walking past the Smoked Fish building on Smith, it did not smell particularly great.

This building is for rent on Prospect Ave. if anyone is interested in continuing the PUB tradition...
Red Hook has developed some great little parks and views along the water...
My wife didn't want me to get too close

Part two coming soon...

This weekend, I didn't get a chance to go on any walks; however, I visited my home town of Philadelphia and caught a Phillies game. The Orioles have Boog's BBQ Pit and we have "The Bull" Luzinski BBQ Pit in Phila.

Some call it Park Slope, some call it South Slope, I call it Greenwood... Lots of new condo's going up around here like Fusion or Shangri-la or Suite Sixteen.

Seems to be common in brooklyn, people planting plants in clothing
I hope there isn't a person in there...

As I am not yet in the digital age, I had to wait to get these photos developed from my trip to Chicago last week...

Tips for Chicago's Wicker Park Walk.

1. Hit the Farmers market. Things were cheap and fresh

2. Check out Northside restaurant; tasty food and lots of TV's for sports watching

3. Be sure to find the points where the train comes rumbling by your local apartment building
