Prospect Park, fall 1970

    Our apartment in Park Slope was about two blocks from Prospect Park, so we went there fairly often during the bright, sunny weather in the fall. I don't remember exactly when this was taken, but it gives a sense of the light, the color, and the overall peaceful atmosphere of the park -- designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the same man who laid out Central Park in Manhattan.

      I imagine this part of Park Slope still looks pretty much the same, nearly 40 years after I took this photo...
