Prospect Lefferts Gardens

I've lived in the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens area for about a year now after being in Clinton Hill for 5 years. so maybe there are not as many shops or bars around but I am taken by this neighborhoods own distinct charm. I am especially drawn to the turn of the century architecture and the close knit feel of the community.

It seems to be one of the well kept secrets of Brooklyn, I hope to create something that captures the unique character of this area that both current residents and those just passing through by way of prospect park or the botanic gardens could easily relate to. 

I've started looking into the history and so far have found that the architectural styles include:

Romanesque Revival 

Colonial Revival 

and Neo-Federal

I'll post examples from the neighborhood and I think want to highlight certain architectural details with my logo design. Sketches to come...
