Friday’s “Habitat” section of the Times has a profile of Joralemon Street resident and urban landscape designer Catherine Fitzsimmons:
The New York Times: THE cobblestone part of Joralemon Street is among the loveliest stretches of Brooklyn Heights. Come spring, and well into the fall, the front gardens of the brownstones that line the street will be lush with greenery, and the window boxes will explode with flowers. But even on this beautiful strip, the low-slung red brick building just off Hicks Street stands out.
Catherine Fitzsimons, who has lived here for three decades, is a landscape designer who specializes in what she diplomatically calls “city-sized” gardens. Throughout most of the year, her narrow, paved front yard is filled with small trees and pots of flowering shrubs waiting to be delivered to clients.
