This is a lengthy walk from the westernmost to easternmost point of Prospect Park. It’s no straight line, and you never set foot inside the park. Instead, the walk skirts the park, taking you through Windsor Terrace south to the Parade Ground and then north through Prospect Lefferts Gardens to the Botanic Garden.
One of the last stops is the most hallowed place in this “city of churches”—the site of Ebbets Field. It has been an apartment complex for more than 40 years but still exerts an emotional pull on baseball fans, Brooklyn nostalgists, and, perhaps, on anyone who has ever had his or her heart broken.
