Park Slope is a neighborhood of readers. This picture was taken near the subway, so the woman could have gotten off the train and needed to keep reading to find out what happened in her book.

I may have been among the last to know that the bridge to a temporary platform at Fourth Avenue was removed. I had to turn around and go down the stairs and up some others to get to a Coney Island-bound train.

The bus is down there somewhere on Seventh Avenue. But before it shows up, a minivan or SUV will barrel down the street at high speed. Good news on this block, though: the donut shop across the street has an A rating hanging in the window. (Cross at the light and have a look.)

Today the weather was glorious, around 60 degrees, though we were robbed of an hour of our day by daylight savings. Tomorrow we’ll be happy when it’s 5:30 and still sunny out, though.

This is the view from Smith & Ninth, taken last April. I’m hoping to revisit the spot where I was standing, toward the front of the platform, as soon as the subway work is done. It’s not a beautiful view, the Lowe’s parking lot, the poisonous canal, and the elevated highway, but I miss it.

Looking south from the temporary bridge at the Fourth Avenue stop on the F Train, this is what the track and platform work looks like. Progress is being made, but the bridge isn’t coming down any time soon.

The front of the extra-long bus that was running in lieu of the subway said “F Train” so I’m playing along. Gyro Place is just off Church Avenue, and what’s unique about its facade are the two huge depictions of gyro meat on either side of the green sign. Gyro lovers see these and get hungry? From my bus seat I could also observe pigeons using one of the gyros as a landing pad.
