When my friend suggested to have an adventure in Prospect Park, I was not expecting to be blown away. I pictured a little park tucked into Brooklyn, similar to many small parks around the city. After eating breakfast at Dizzy’s, I entered the park via 9th street where I was greeted with the Lafayette Monument (pictured above). The park was a site for the Battle of Long Island during the American Revolution. The park is about 250 acres smaller than Central Park… aka HUGE! I literally have never seen so many gorgeous colors of leaves in one spot! How these parks exist in middle of concrete and traffic of millions of people/taxis AND stay so beautifully peaceful is beyond me. I tried to Snapchat (that’s so a verb now) my friends to share the views right then and there but they most definitely did not do it justice. I hope these will.
