Love Lane
With the Valentine’s Day holiday right around the corner, the photo of the week depicts a view of the south side of Love Lane in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Love Lane is a one block mews that connects Henry Street to Hicks Street. Dating back to the Revolutionary War, Love Lane divided the estates of the DeBevoise and Pierrepont families.
