Where I'm calling from

Looking out at Plumb Beach and across the water toward Breezy Point from the bike lane beside the Belt, a little before sunset on my way home from the garden. This doesn't look like what people think about when they imagine New York City or Brooklyn, but it's a piece of this city and this long island that's pretty dear to me. I wonder what part of what I see is real and how much has been manufactured. I know the terrain of this southernmost part of Brooklyn has been drastically altered for road construction and other reasons.
