I should really do more on Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn. It runs continuously from Flatbush Avenue at Prospect Park all the way south to Sheepshead Bay, standing in for East 20th Street.
When I lived in Brooklyn I never rode a bike on the avenue because, dominated almost completely by apartment buildings, it seemed boring to my 20+ year old eyes. However now that I notice detail much better than back then, I can appreciate its subtleties like this tiled arch entryway, with a missing section that’s never likely to be replaced.
I did cover the section between Flatbush and Parkside Avenues a few years ago.
