Spring has officially sprung! It’s time to put away those winter clothes and bask in the warm rays of the sun. One particular activity I look forward to when the weather permits is having a relaxing picnic. In 1920s Brooklyn, the picnic grounds in Prospect Park were quite the hot ticket as you can see above. Let’s hope the park doesn’t get this crowded over the next few weeks as it gets even warmer. Regardless, go outside and enjoy!
