Photo of the Day: Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn NY

Early last month, on my way to Brooklyn Heights, I stopped briefly by Cadman Plaza Park, located on the border between that neighborhood and downtown Brooklyn. The 10.4-acre park—originally called Brooklyn Bridge Park, then renamed for a Congregational minister and radio preacher—includes memorials to Mayor William Jay Gaynor and the borough’s service personnel who fought in WWII.

Part of the reason I took this photo, I think, was the thought that so many—like those here—came to visit this green space near the automobile ramp onto the Brooklyn Bridge--a breath of fresh air amid the stress of modern life.
