We spent a good part of yesterday afternoon in Brooklyn, near the waterfront at 
the bottom of Grand Street. This is a neighbour I used to visit when we lived 
in New Jersey in the 1990s and would come into the city on Sundays to visit my 
wife’s aunt in Wiliamsburg. Back then, the words used to describe the place 
would be multi-ethnic but also seedy, run-down, and frankly also somewhat 
dangerous (during one of our first visits to Williamsburg, in 1990, someone was 
shot on the street while we were visiting).

Today, Brooklyn is a very different place. 30 years ago, we never saw this kind 
of people in the street:

The derelict waterfront is now a nice park called Domino Park, with nice views 
of Manhattan:

And there is also a great little dog park under the Williamsburg Bridge:

A most enjoyable place.
