Ambling on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn
My friend wanted to take me to "the greatest Caribbean food." Of course, the place was closed, and we ate very average Caribbean food elsewhere (so average that the Taste of Jamaica place on H Street NE is actually better). But we ambled for a number of blocks in this area a few blocks from the Parkside NYC subway station, on the far side of Prospect Park (and nothing like Park Slope).
This is by no means a systematic photographic exploration of the street. I took a bunch of photographs, and I could have easily taken triple the number, but we were trying to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time.
I really love this banner...
In the few blocks that we walked, there were at least 6 grocery stores, most with extensive produce sections, usually with produce on the street, and merchandised in ways that are familiar to the various ethnic groups that comprise their customer base.
