This past Saturday I took an afternoon walk to DUMBO to get some Jacques Torres Easter chocolates for my wife and daughter. Although the day was chilly, the sun was bright, and people were using the outdoor tables and chairs on the plaza at Old Fulton street in the Fulton Ferry Historic District.
Jacques Torres was doing lively business when I arrived.
There was a line of people waiting for rides on Jane’s Carousel, and many others just enjoying the outdoors in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

No photo essay of mine is complete without a tugboat. Here’s the poetically named Evening Mist docked at Pier 7, as seen from Pier 6, Brooklyn Bridge Park.
It appears that work has begun on the “perched wetland” that is to occupy the outer portion of Pier 6.
