Best Neighborhood to Appreciate the Changing of the Seasons
It’s spring! Spring has sprung. But it’s hard to really appreciate the changing of the seasons when your environment is full of glass and concrete instead of, we don’t know, meadows and mountains and whatever natural wonders exist outside of this city. Unless, of course, you’re in Prospect Heights and can pop into the lush, verdant wonderland that is Prospect Park or—even better—head over to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, where the cherry blossoms are just starting to brighten our once dreary landscape and think about what Pablo Neruda once wrote, “I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.” And then get all warm inside. Just like how the earth is getting warm on the inside. Ah, spring. You’re back.
