"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

A Year In Review: 2009 In Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

This, dear Readers, is my last post for the year 2009. What better way of recapping the year than to go through my photos of our lovely neighborhood and to choose the best one of every month.

It has been a busy twelve months in Carroll Gardens. Personally, 2009 has been a wee bit more challenging than previous years and there was much uncertainty. But 2009 was not without joy. And laughter. For that, I am grateful.

I am also grateful to you, dear Reader, for your visits to Pardon me For Asking, for your witty comments, your encouragement and for sharing your stories about the neighborhood.

I hope that 2010 will bring many good things to everyone and to Carroll Gardens.

And Come Back On Monday, When Pardon Me For Asking Starts 2010 With New Posts!

Beautiful way to illustrate a year.

Shows us each day is a picture if we take the trouble to look around.

Happy New Year to all!

Happy 2010, Katia, to you and to your readers. I loved the pics of your neighborhood, especially the ones in the winter (I love the snow :)
If you feel like seeing Berlin under the snow, I published some pics of the Hauptstadt that you might enjoy. Here it has been snowing since Tuesday, almost non-stop; a nice way to say bye to 2009!

Good luck,

When I see your pictures, I can say I love Brooklyn. I have a very good memory from my stay in 2006 with you and family.

Happy New Year to You, Glenn, Celina, Max!
