"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

It's Starting To Look A Lot Like Christmas In the Neighborhood

Our Brooklyn neighborhood is beautiful all year around, but the Holiday season sure adds a touch of magic, don't you think?  Just in the past few days,  Christmas tree vendors have taken their usual spots on Court Street and Smith Street and local stores have begun to decorate their windows.
It is difficult to not get into the spirit, even if the temperatures are still rather mild for the season.

Perhaps this year, we can all make an effort to buy and to dine locally in order to support our local, family-owned  businesses.  Without them, the neighborhood would just not be the same.

Maybe Katia won't post this comment....

Slightly off topic.... but does anyone else find it a bit odd that St. Peter's church on Court St has gold leafed the statues in its front garden?

I find the gold-leafed Mary and Jesus on the crucifix to be weird looking.
