Sisters: Beadel Street Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Beadel Street is a wonderfully odd place, a single residential block in an otherwise industrial area.

Cut off from the rest of north Greenpoint by the BQE its managed to maintain a strong community spirit, with well maintained homes, an active neighborhood patrol, and generally friendly people.

The unique zoning came from an attempt to find homes for returning WW II veterans. Now it has the feel of a very small town surrounded by a much larger city.
