Your pictures are really nice. I like the Downtown Brooklyn ones and the Downtown ones even more.

Are those waterfall things real? They should have wasted money on something better than that. They make the area looks worst instead of better.

So awesome! I was just there at the end of June on holidays and I was downtown during that big storm and I was at probably 80 percent of those spots on your pictures that day. I kept looking for myself in your photos!

Downtown Brooklyn, like the rest of the city and mainly in Manhattan, is experiencing its own building Boom.
