POTW Brooklyn Heights PromenadePhoto of the Week:
Brooklyn Heights Promenade

The Photo of the Week depicts the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Heighs Promenade, located only a few blocks from BHS. The photo was taken by Edna Glyde around 1964. Glyde was a resident of Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, and many of her photographs depict street scenes throughout the neighborhood. Learn how Glyde achieved the unique tone of this photograph (specifically the rich blue tones) on the
BHS Blog...
