Brooklyn, "See it Now" #4. Photos by K.K.W

When I started this series, some months back, it was with an essay by Tanja St about her city Skopje, capital of Macedonia. The  title of the series I took from a T.V series hosted by Edward R Murrow (which I learned about from the film "Good Night & Good Luck"). The basic point is to showcase great visuals about different parts of NYC and elsewhere in the world, thereby giving you a real sense of the place in question.    
The harbor @ Emmons ave,
Sheepshead bay sector Bklyn
This month were taking you to Sheepshead bay sector of Brooklyn, along the water. The area is home to a large number of people from the east of Europe (Russia, Ukraine, Poland, with a fair amount of them being Jewish: Orthodox and secular). Along the harbor you'll find shops, a small "mall", excellent restaurants (a lot of seafood), boats of various sizes (some for rent, others you can go for a ride on and get away from the "hustle & bustle" of the area.). 

In its way the area is like a little foreign
place within Bklyn, a strange,
 beautiful feel all its own.
On this side of the harbor you can go for a bike
ride (I rode my bike there from east 18th &
Beverly road), & or go fishing.

This is the bridge that separates both sides
of the harbor. Biking across it is not allowed.
If your lucky you might see the swans.
