PHOTOS: Sweet November in Fort Greene Park

Brooklynites unite under sunny skies and unusually balmy temps this p.m.

Winter? What winter?

Instead of being the harbinger of colder temperatures, ice and snow, late November showed a much kinder side across Brooklyn this Monday afternoon.

As of 1 p.m., temperatures were a balmy 67 degrees in Fort Greene, with a high near 70 expected—15 degrees above the norm for this time of year.

Brooklyn Tech student Kimberly Torres wasn't taking the beautiful weather for granted, spending her noontime in deep contemplation under sunny, warm skies at Fort Greene Park. "It's a good time to think," she said.

And the subject of Torres' reverie?

"I'm thinking of changing my major," said Torres, a current student of architecture—an area of expertise she claimed to be less than fond.

Others spent the afternoon occupied with less profound pursuits.

Fort Greene resident Ian Pay set up his serve at the park's tennis courts in a friendly match on what may be one of the last beautiful days of 2011.

As of noon, Pay was tied with his opponent, 4-4.
