Here are some sketches I made of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn during my Thanksgiving holiday visit...
Please excuse the wonky perspective in the monument sketch directly above, it was getting cold in Brooklyn after a few hours and my hands were freezing.
This World War I monument was dedicated to locals who served. Among them was a soldier named John Lennon.
This post is dedicated to
musician John Lennon, October 9, 1940 - Decenber 8, 1980,
who loved my neighborhood, he said it reminded him of Liverpool. Mr. Lennon visited the home of my friend Jimmy Iovine, recording engineer/producer a few times in the mid-'70s. I've been told that George Harrison also spent a week in the late '60s at the Cobble Hill quarters of the Hari Krishna's, on the corner of Kane and Henry streets, directly across the street from where Winston Churchill's mother once lived.
