"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 has become a bit of a tradition here at PMFA to end the year with a review featuring some of the photographs featured during the year. Part of the reason I continue to write this blog and to photograph Carroll Gardens throughout the seasons is to hold on to time, which appears to be passing ever faster, though a year continues to have twelve months. As the pace of change in our neighborhood has accelerated, I feel compelled even more to capture what was, before it is lost forever.
I would like to thank all of you, my dear Readers, for joining me on this continued celebration of our very special Brooklyn neighborhood. Throughout 2017, I have met many of you personally. I have enjoyed reading all your thoughtful comments and love that you continue to visit  this little blog. You have contributed to making this a place for the community to have a voice, and for that, I am very thankful.
As 2017 ends and 2018 begins, I wish all of you health, love and happiness.
Katia
