Newsletter Issue 6 (Welcome to Park Slope; My Photography on a Trash Can)


I recently moved to a new neighborhood (Park Slope, Brooklyn), and am loving it so far. This neighborhood (which straddles the western portion of Prospect Park) is known for its elaborate brownstones and tree-lined streets. I’ve been spending much time scoping out certain blocks for when Peak Autumn hits in a few weeks.

My Photography is Trash

Back in May, I was approached by the organization Downtown Brooklyn to feature this photo on a trash receptacle in the neighborhood.

At 87.5 ft above ground level, the iconic Smith-Ninth Streets station towers over the Gowanus Canal. It’s only a 10-minute bike ride from me, and I think it’s safe to say that this station will be my new go-to skyline lookout!
