Picture Postcard: Calvert Vaux Park, Brooklyn NY

5 Jul

June 5, 2016

I took these in Calvert Vaux Park on July 3rd. This is a large park in South Brooklyn that, due to its isolation alongside the Belt Parkway, relatively few people go to. You can see the Coney Island Parachute Jump in the background of a couple, and if you look closely, you can spot a horseshoe crab or two. This is their spawning season. Much of the park is brand new and newly renovated, with ball fields and picnic areas. But along the water, there are still old relics of abandoned piers and half-submerged boats. I only covered the southern edge of the park and I’ll follow up with more pics from the bulk of the park later on in the month.

      This is a park I drive past multiple times per week, near where I’ve lived all my life, and this was the very first time I went in. It really is in an obscure location and I only walked a very tiny fraction of it. From what I’ve checked out online, there are much more interesting parts yet to be seen by me.

        Looks like there are more postcards coming 🙂 It would also be a cool location for a thriller or horror film…

          I didn’t get to the part of the park that faces the open water. There are supposed to be a lot of interesting wrecks and relics there.

      Thanks. This was only a tiny sliver of the the park. There should be more interesting sights to come.
