So close to home, yet it feels like I’m far away.
Right in the middle of Brooklyn, not ten blocks from my apartment, is Prospect Park. Designed by the same planners who were responsible for Central Park in Manhattan, Prospect is a great walkable getaway when you need to escape some of the frenzy of urban living. The day I took this, I wound up walking about seven miles throughout the park. There are hiking paths, tiny waterfalls, and somewhere even a Quaker cemetery (it’s closed to the public, but allegedly you can see it from a path). When I took this I was waiting for those people to move so I could look for a geocache nearby. They didn’t leave, so I moved on to another. Guess I’ll need to go back some time soon.
