Prospect Park: An Oasis in Prospect Park, Brooklyn
The people in these photographs use Prospect Park as a place to embrace nature and temporarily leave the hardships of city life behind, even for just a few precious minutes. This is the place I go to separate myself from the noise and endless crowds of New York.
The community is very peaceful and family oriented. I am very fortunate to have wonderful and caring neighbors, many whom I consider a part of my extended family.
The perfect day for me begins around 5 AM on any given Saturday. For me the highlight is to sit in my garden and wait for the rising of the morning sun and the accompanying songs of various species of birds
It is very serene and serves as a place to meditate and reflect.
Outside the perimeter of the park is an extremely vibrant community. One might be surprised at the depth of the serenity inside.
