Photo of the Day: The Gnome of Third Street

This little earth-dweller sits in a garden, perhaps protecting an underground gold mine….


There is a little yellow gnome in Park Slope.

He guards a brownstone garden, sitting semi-obscured by a tree.

The word gnome first appears in the works of 16th Century Swiss alchemist Paracelsus, and was derived from the Renaissance Latin word “gnomus,” meaning earth-dweller.

Today, upload pictures of other gnomes in the neighborhood to this article, or Facebook page or e-mail them to Will.Yakowicz@Patch.com.
