Summertime in Brooklyn, with its simple pleasures, has always been a magic time. This wonderful family photo comes from loyal PMFA reader Francis. He entitled it "Balloon Man." It was taken a few years back on First Place.
He also included the photo below of his mother standing in front of her stoop in 1999.
Thanks, Francis, and keep those glorious Carroll Gardens memories coming.
If anyone else would like to share their old Carroll Gardens pics, please send them my way at pardonmeinbrooklyn at gmail dot com. I would love to post them on PMFA.
