Carroll Gardens Get a Little More Christmas Spirit

Last year, I blogged briefly about my disappointment with the Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill holiday lights displays. Whereas in the past, Court Street was fairly strewn with decorations, in 2008 the street bore only two strings of lights—both on the block between Union and President.

Things have improved a little this season. There are what looks to be a total of four strings of lights (maybe five), hung at wide intervals between 1st Street at the south end of Court and maybe Congress at the north. (The one above is at Court and Union. If you squint, you can see the string at DeGraw.) Still pretty skimpy, but a better showing. And the lights appear to be brand new.

Maybe next year it'll double again and we'll get eight strings!
