Court House and new buildings

In Brooklyn. And a big fat discard rabbit teddy bear. A bubble tea house. Brooklyn Law School.

Brooklyn Height Promenade

From Montague Street off Hicks Street, at 6:45pm.

It’s been in the 90+ degrees for the past few days. Not too humid, but could use a rain or two to cool down a little.

The esplanade walkway is pretty empty. We’re facing the sun set but didn’t stay to watch it going down.

A weekday in Brooklyn

We drove down Atlantic Avenue to lunch near Hoyt, passing by Barclays Center. The new skylines/tall buildings, the double deck tourist buses,  Brooklyn has been hot for a long time. Took in Star Trek Beyond at United Artists on Court Street (comfy seats @ $20! Movie theaters are very much alive.) and strolled on the BB Park Pier 5 & Brooklyn Height Promenade. The Brevoort Station (NY 11216) post office looks old.

French Louie

320 Atlantic Ave (bet Smith/Hoyt)

French Louie refers to Louie Seymour, an interesting character from the past. How did the owner choose to name after him is unknown.

My review on Yelp

Simple and clean decor. Noisy. Flies (ok, it’s summer, but …). Slow service – an hour wait. The patio looks comfortable. I like how they serve the house wine, by letting you taste it first. Also like how they replace the utensil, from a wooden box.
