Fort Greene Park

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Here are some pretty pictures of Fort Greene Park by Lena Corwin, a local designer whose work (and site) I greatly admire. I came across the photos on Brownstoner, and was prompted to do a quick search of the site for the park, which is a quick two block walk from my new home. The search rendered this recent post about Fort Greene Park. I was tickled to think that Walt Whitman had a hand in my local green space. I know it may be clich├ęd or just downright hokey, but I love Whitman, always have. Parts of Leaves of Grass give me shivers. It’s nice to get a little taste of neighborhood history from time to time.
