108 WYCOFF STREET, BROOKLYN

One recent spring evening, The Sweetie and I were walking around Carroll Gardens and were startled to come upon these exuberant mosaics.  I’ve been lucky enough to see the ancient Byzantine and Roman mosaics in Ravenna, Tunis, and Piazza Amerina, Sicily, and while I appreciated their great beauty and craftsmanship, they did not evoke the visceral surprise and delight I experienced that evening at 108 Wycoff.
