Then and Now: Park Slope, Brooklyn

I've been bingeing on historic photos of my neighborhood recently. I just LOVE a good Then-and-Now photo comparison and had to whip up two quick ones for my own fun using photos from Brooklyn's Park Slope: A Photographic Restrospective by Brian Merlis and Lee A. Rosenzweig and Google Maps Here's the corner of 9th Street and 7th Avenue looking north, 1928 and now:

And one block up to 8th Avenue and 9th Street, also looking north, 1928 and now:

Flipping through these photos I'm repeatedly struck by how devoid the streets felt of cars and trees back in the day. It's also strange to imagine this neighborhood without its subway stops.

Now to wonder what the place will look like 100 years from now...
