As I said, thank god for the weather since that took a lot of the sting out of my lackluster performance today in tracking down these memorials. Below, some random shots from today's walk when I wasn't snapping pictures of plaques and flagpoles. As always, click on a photo for a larger view.

Prospect Park, in particular is beautiful around this time of the year and my walk around (most of) the lake was enjoyable.

And, despite having been through the
Sunset Park neighborhood on many occasions over the summer, today was actually the first time I was in Sunset Park itself. Talk about some views. Whew!

Fort Hamilton Parkway is always a pleasant place to walk, whether up by Ocean Parkway, alongside Green-Wood Cemetery (below), or further west toward Bay Ridge.

A Borough Park landmark, St. Catherine of Alexandria Church on Fort Hamilton Parkway.

On a day like this I probably should have taken the time to take more photographs but I didn't get back home until twilight as it was, so hadn't a lot of time for dallying around.

Because I added a Sunday entry to yesterday's memorial post rather than wait another week or two, I'll add a corresponding "compensation" here from my walk today (Sunday), which is the old Boys High School in Brooklyn, on Marcy Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. A gorgeous Romanesque style building dating to 1892. Please clik on the link below for some background on it.

Also a very pretty row of houses on St. Mark's Avenue between Brooklyn and Kingston Avenues, across from Brower Park.
