On Sunday I had the pleasure of a six mile hike through Bedford-Stuyvesant (in lousy weather, I might add: I hope you don't take these shots for granted). I knew there would be gorgeous brownstones and row houses, and there certainly were. They tended to have the detailed ornamentation one doesn't find in Park Slope, apparently coming from a later period. There were plenty of Green Men, for instance, and detailed interweaved vines. But I was floored by this: it was the only one I've seen, not just on Sunday, but even in other neighborhoods with buildings from the same period and done in the same style. Throop Avenue, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
