Everything worked pretty well until I got to around 9th St. in Park Slope, where it all ground to a halt. No problem: When one avenue stalls, I'll just jump over to the next: Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth. Nothing helped. All chock-a-block. Prospect Park West was fine, except it's one way the wrong way (I guess I never drove when I lived around here). Eventually I crossed the Rubicon of Flatbush Ave. and made it to Vanderbilt Avenue. After that, I was home free. "Never get off the boat," Martin Sheen says in Apocalypse Now, "Absolutely, goddamn right."
