It was a very blustery Autumn day last Friday, and before all the leaves blew off the trees here in Brooklyn, New York, I thought I better go out and take some photos to capture their beauty.
I was in Park Slope, walking around Fifth and Seventh Aves. As you can see more than one tree grows in Brooklyn, and they were scattering golden and red leaves all over the stoops and sidewalks.

The avenues in Park Slope, Brooklyn are full of interesting shops and boutiques.
And some stores cater to Brooklyn pride.
Park Slope is considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods, and it is easy to see why!
