2010 In Carroll Gardens:
A Year In Pictures
My, how fast twelve months pass. 2010 has brought many changes to the neighborhood, some welcomed, some less so. A few beloved neighborhood stores have been lost forever, but there have been a few lovely new additions on both Court and Smith Streets. Some condo developments were finally completed, but received mixed reviews. Others remain holes in the ground, unlikely to rise anytime soon. With the support of the community, the Gowanus Canal has been 'superfunded', finally giving residents hope that this long-neglected waterway will get cleaned up.
Personally, 2010 was filled with joy, unexpected surprises, new friends, and incredible rewards. Now in its fourth year, Pardon Me For Asking continues to give me much pleasure. It connects me to the neighborhood more than I ever thought possible. Most importantly, it connects me to you, dear Readers and Neighbors. It is a daily pleasure to read your comments and emails to me. I always value your opinions and particularly love hearing about your own life, present and past, in Carroll Gardens.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
I'll meet you back here in 2011.
