Let's Take a Walk Along The Salt Marsh Nature Center Path...

Above: On the way in....on Ave. U and E. 33rd St.

Below: Restrooms and pamphlets inside, as well as meeting rooms and where they  give talks and give presentations and shows.


Above: First Stop...

Above: Second Stop...Overlook from bridge.
    The first half of this mile-long trail follows the shore of Gerritsen Beach, which empties into Jamaica Bay. From the trail’s boardwalk and viewing platforms you can observe the birdlife for which the park is famous, including the herons, egrets, ducks, and geese that frequent the marsh throughout the year. The trail’s second leg winds through a prairie of tall grass, where you can sometimes spot cottontail rabbits and ring-necked pheasants. Comfort stations and maps are available inside the Salt Marsh Nature Center.
Above: Walking Path is a loop - a bench or two along the way.

Above: Stop Three...a deck platform with bench overlooking the water.

Above: A nice spot for a picnic lunch...bring sunscreen and OFF in summer.

June is Roses in Brooklyn!

 So many front gardens in Brooklyn have rose bushes of many varieties that appear in June and remain throughout the summer. 
 The Botanic Garden has a Rose Garden that is in full bloom in June. It is worth a visit to see all the beautiful colorful fragrant varieties that they have. 
  Let's take a peek at some of the roses in Brooklyn via the following photos...
