Wood-lined tunnel leading into the Grand Meadow in the 585-acre Prospect Park, Brooklyn, which was designed in 1865 by Frederick Law Olmsted & Calvert Vaux, and built in 1866-1873. The tunnel makes for a dramatic introduction to the beauty of the park.
Tree-lined street in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Imagine what this street would be like without the trees.

I love the perspective on the Tunnel. If you look quick, the pic almost feels as if it has movement. Might make a good poster.
