This morning I resumed my routine of taking a brisk walk along the Promenade, down Squibb Hill, around Pier 1, and back. I was anxious to see how this part of Brooklyn Bridge Park had weathered the hurricane. On the way in, I passed this blaze of fall foliage (click on image to enlarge). More photos and text after the jump.
Looking north along the riverside esplanade toward the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
A single, battered Rosa rugosa clings to its bush, surrounded by rose hips.
Frank Gehry’s 8 Spruce Street shows its Bernini drapery in the morning sunlight. A Machine, part of Oscar Tuazon’s “People” series of sculptures, is in the foreground.

Looking south along the Esplanade; the skeleton of the shed on Pier 2 is in the background.
