Lonely Horse in the City Street

It's block party season again! Not that my block has one or I'm all that thrilled about no parking and a bunch of kids drawing with chalk in the street but the major thing I like about block parties here in Brooklyn is that you can walk in the middle of the street. My dog gets a particular thrill about it since he gets to pee on the curb side of all his favorite trees and hydrants. That's big stuff in the dog world.

Brownstone and Sky

Sorry it's been a while since my last post here. This is the classic "brownstone and sky" shot from somewhere in Park Slope. A standard shot, but one that never gets old in my book. Or blog. Enjoy:

Julie and Julia Filming in Park Slope

Today they were filming Julie and Julia in Park Slope. The movie is based on this book about a woman who tries to cook all of Julia Child's recipes from Mastering The Art of French Cooking, Volume One in one year in order to change her life. The film is based in the 50's in Paris and Cafe Moutarde was apparently a stand in for a French cafe- hence the classic cars. The movie has a bunch of stars in it, most notably Meryl Streep as Julia Childs. I spotted Meryl today walking to her oversized trailer (it looked like she had an entire huge trailer to herself whereas the other "stars" had like 1/5th of a trailer each). She was wearing a plaid suit with her hair tucked under a matching hat and striped very high wedge shoes- at least 3-4 inches.

Garfield's on 4th

What's the deal with this place? It seems odd that they placed their Garfield's signage under the roll up gate so you can't see it most of the time since they never seem to be open. I peeked in- it goes back really far- all the way to the block behind it. Looks like a bar/restaurant possibly. Or just a bar.

Spring has Sprung

Spring is definitely here with the trees in bloom...not all yet but some of the more flowery ones. The weather has taken a turn and it's quite pleasant out.
