Big Brooklyn Buildings


It's a nice day out today. The temperature is only a few degrees above freezing, but the sun is shining brightly in the blue New York sky. I went for a run in McCarren Park this morning to enjoy the weather before I spent the afternoon indoors editing a screenplay for a friend. McCarren Park has a nice spongey running track, and I did two miles (eight laps) and also took some photos. It was quite pleasant.

The photo above shows the fanciest new builing currently being built in Williamsburg. It's a luxury condo building right on the park, although this photo was taken from the back because the sunlight was better. Supposedly it's going to have a fitness center and lounge on the roof. Below is a photo of the front (park side) of the building, along with its shorter but still snazzy neighbors.



This neighborhood has really come a long way in a short time. It's amazing that developers have put so much faith (and money) into a neighborhood that was for so many years industrial and working class and more than a little run down.

Here's the kavorka church.



Tonight we're going to an Oscar party at my friend Elaine's new apartment on West 110th Street. I've only seen one nominated movie, Good Night and Good Luck, which is a movie about smoking.
