The building by Borough Hall is being re-habbed. We’ll have to wait and see what that means. The exterior still looks the same; it’s not easy to update these old office buildings that are found in downtown Brooklyn.

Here’s your appetizer. To get one for yourself at the New Floridian, go to Kings Plaza, then drive down Flatbush until you see a restaurant that doesn’t look like a diner, thanks to its modernized facade. Park the car (only a lunatic would take public transportation this far out); you have arrived! Enjoy.
Yesterday was a washout, literally. Today is already nicer, though there are going to be big puddles and muddy patches. If you’re craving street food this cart is parked between Barnes & Noble and Methodist Hospital. There’s usually a Mr. Softee waiting for people when they walk out the door of the emergency room.
We need a dash of color on a day like this, even if it’s something that got left behind; what some might call trash. Note the antennas on the buildings across the street.
This is one of those huge grocery stores; Brooklyn has a few of them. What’s important in this picture are the pickles. This weekend is Memorial Day, so there’s going to be a mad rush on picnic supplies starting very soon. You’ve been warned.

The song kept playing, but there were no customers while the Softee truck gassed up. The driver had to get out because the gas tank is in a secret location in the back, by the rainbow sprinkles.
It was a rather surreal sight, the waterlogged watermelon. Bits of it were scattered around the sand. I suspect people on the beach had a snack and were too lazy to tote their garbage to the boardwalk. Those *&#(*^@!.
The road is decorated with spray paint; no road work has been done, though. After Prospect Park and Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn levels out, flat as a pancake, all the way to Coney Island.
Brooklyn has tourists! They are looking at a big metal sidewalk map and the buildings on Court Street. Those of us who live here full-time are not moved by the architecture; we are more concerned with the spring weather. One minute it’s hot, the next it’s chilly.
