Brooklyn the Beautiful

Brooklyn the Beautiful is a mural that celebrates the Brooklyn Zoo, Ebbets Field, and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. It’s just situated at the edge of Prospect Park, just a hop and skip away from the funky Flatbush Ave. sign that I love.

This mural was painted by Quentin “kwenci” Jones, a Brooklyn-based artist, teacher, and builder. Jones also provided the illustrations for Obara the Gatekeeper by Michelle Bodden, an adaptation of a traditional story from the Yoruba people of Nigeria.
