Day 54

Victorian Flatbush

February 22nd, 2012

That's the colloquial name for this chunk of central Brooklyn, which was "in many respects . . . the first suburbs." This particular house is located in the neighborhood of Beverley Square East.

Funny note about the linked NY Times article: it mentions the hideous abbreviation "NoProPaSo" (North of Prospect Park South), which for years I had cited as the most heinous of the recent rash of shortened neighborhood nicknames. Turns out it was created as a joke, but the Times reporter failed to record that detail!


  1. NoProPaSo sounds like Spanish and reminds me oF wHeN pEoPLe TyPed like this.

    Sounds kinda like fa sa lo do rae me.

    NYT link brings up the article, but then obscures it with a “subscribe now” banner that cant be removed. So much for that.
