My sister sent me a link yesterday to a really great web site for all of you Brooklynites, or those of you who are just curious, who want to see what the Borough of Churches looked like many years ago. Brooklynpix.com has photos of Brooklyn dating back to the start of the 20th century, from all different parts of the borough.
The photo here was taken about a block north of where my house is today, and it was taken around 1930. It's truly amazing to see how much my area, as well as all of Brooklyn, has changed over the years.
Here's a link to the site: www.brooklynpix.com. It's quite an eye-opening look to what Brooklyn once looked like.
