Right when I thought I was done: A veteran garbage-truck-turned-snow-plow hits the streets for one last job near 65th Street and the Gowanus Expressway on March 20.
Season of new beginnings: Getting in the spirit of the season, a soon-to-be-wed couple takes advantage of the first day of spring to pose by the Brooklyn Bridge.
Round and round the seasons go: Prompted by the changing of the season, a man ponders the relentless march of time on the banks of the West River.
Ah, spring: In a seasonal ritual a man celebrates the onset of spring by brushing a winter’s worth of snow off his car in Dumbo.

It is the new spring!

Brooklynites across Brooklyn streamed outside and rejoiced as winter came to an official end on March 20, welcoming the spring and all its good tidings.

Taking advantage of the weather, people turned out in droves to take a stroll on the Coney Island Boardwalk. And in Brooklyn Heights, one loving, soon-to-be-wed couple celebrated the season of rebirth by taking photographs as the Brooklyn Bridge loomed behind them, almost visible through the snow.

We here at The Brooklyn Paper pride ourselves on adaptability, and if driving snow is the new look of spring, then we say to heck with baby animals and budding trees. Grab a sled.
