The NY Times reflects on the beautiful Memorial Day weekend and mentions BHB’s Karl Junkersfeld:
NY Times: It was a sumptuous pseudo-summer day to be under a canopy of trees or on a sandy beach with lawn chairs, blankets and picnic lunches. Temperatures were in the 80s, the air was crystalline, soft breezes caressed the cheek and the sky was an arch of blue, touched here and there with castles of clouds.
If there was a perfect spot to sit back and take it all in, Karl Junkersfeld found it in the new Brooklyn Bridge Park, with a sweeping tableau of the East River, Lower Manhattan and the harbor. From his perch on a grassy knoll, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges soared overhead, historic ships slept at anchor at the South Street Seaport, and ferries and sailboats moved gently over the plate-of-pewter harbor.
“It turns out this is the best spot,” said Mr. Junkersfeld, 57, a retired banker. “I like the open expanse. In the city, you usually feel so cramped. You get a breeze up here too.”
