South Slope and the Worst Park Ever
The lower photo is the site of the DePrisco's home in 2007 - a disused, gated and locked Community Garden contained within a fairly barren park, in the South Slope. It's just off 7th Ave, edging the side of the Prospect Expressway. Funny thing is, much of the Prospect Expressway is lined with (sometimes nice, sometimes even really nice) vest-pocket parks, especially on the South side of Windsor Terrace. Many are tiny. This one is pretty big. Speaking in the vernacular of the day, "What a dump."
What would Mrs. DePrisco think?
