The Brooklyn Heights Promenade on a Sunday in Fall

The Brooklyn Heights Promenade offers a marvelous view on the Manhattan’s skyline and the Eastriver. Build above the Brooklyn-Queens-Expressway in 1950, the promenade attracts residents and tourists since then. This Photo and Audio Slideshow is a project of “The Beat: Reporting Downtown” at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at NYU.

I enjoyed this multimedia project as I had the chance to make use of my camera skills. Working with Adobe Creative Suite is fun and offers endless opportunities to tell nice stories. I used an iPhone to record audio. It is ok but exposed to wind or while walking it is not sufficient. Finally, I am thankful that plenty of people agreed to participate in this project.

After fatal crashes Brooklyn Heights got a Slow Zone

There is something new on Clinton Street. It is just paint and plates, but they make a difference.

Motorists entering Brooklyn Heights from Atlantic Avenue face a fresh pedestrian crosswalk and “MPH 20” is written on the street. Aside, two signs: “Slow Zone.”

There is one next to Key Food Market and another in front of Bagel Café.

On its sidewalk, Marta Atwater, an Emmy-winning TV-writer and Brooklyn Heights’ resident, died at 48 on February 22nd, 2013. After she left Bagel Café, Atwater was pinned underneath a 2011 Honda Ridgeline SUV whose 53-year-old driver lost control of his car. He was driving north on Clinton Street and jumped the curb at Atlantic Avenue.

This crash fortified the Brooklyn Heights Association (BHA), a residents’ union, whose board Atwater had joined, to find a solution for Brooklyn Heights’ traffic problems. weiterlesen

You think you are in Puerto Rico but you are still in NYC

New York is still hotter than 88°F (31°C) and going for a swim is one of the best reasons to travel to the outer boroughs. Travelling to Orchard Beach is like travelling to Puerto Rico without leaving New York City. weiterlesen
