Just Another Perfect Day in Paradise

Is Brooklyn Heights paradise? Yesterday, a clear, crisp, hint-of-fall Saturday, it seemed close to it. As I left for a brisk walk, just outside the front door of my building I spotted what may be one of David Glick’s bees gathering nectar to make Rosh Hashana honey. (Click on photo to enlarge.) More photos and text after the jump.

There were lots of kayakers out on the water beteween piers 1 and 2, Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Lots more people were lined up waiting for kayaks.

There was already a touch of fall color on the leaves of this tree at the south end of the Promenade.

Holly berries are ripening on a bush on Remsen Street near Montague Terrace.

In front of J. McLaughlin, 218 Hicks Street (between Montague and Remsen), store manager Lauren (left) and Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition volunteer Joan held kittens eager for homes.

We watched the sunset from the roof of my building, with friends, wine, and hors d’ouvres. As the sun sank behind the First Watchung Mountain, the South Street Seaport Museum’s schooner Pioneer was heading out for a sunset cruise.
