Hey Peter,

I hope all is well.

I finally got around to doing that walk I was telling you about.  I started at the BBG Eastern Parkway entrance.  I went through the BBG in about an hour and exited the Flatbush Entrance.  Entered Prospect Park on Flatbush went by the boathouse through the lull water to the skating rink, then doubled back along the lake and up lookout and then over by the Quaker Cem to Bartel-Pritchard Square entrance.  Then I went down Prospect Park West to Greenwood.  Spent an hour there and exited on 5th Ave and 34th St. Next it was onto Bush Terminal.  I spent about an hour there too.  The total walk took about 5 and a half hours.  I figured it was about 5-6 miles.  I am going to sleep well tonight.  Let me know if you ever want to give it a try LOL.  Here is what I saw today:
