The Brooklyn Eagle took a windy stroll through Brooklyn Heights during Winter Storm Stella on Tuesday. Enterprising shovelers were in action on the streets and sidewalks, and valiant Parks Department employees fought a constant battle to keep the Promenade and its entrances clear.

Some sections of picturesque Montague Street look much the same as they did decades ago, when deep snows were more common.

In the snow, these storefronts look much like they did decades ago.

Lassen & Hennings, founded in 1939, was one of the first shops on Montague Street to shovel its sidewalk on Tuesday.

James Weir Floral Company, Brooklyn's oldest florist, was founded in 1853, just across Montague Street.

Many of the citizens braving the storm were accompanied by their dogs, who seemed blithely unaware of the stinging sleet and sub-freezing temperature.

Weather fit for a husky!

Kudos to the valiant Parks Department workers who braved the worst of Stella to keep the walkways clear on the Promenade.

Parks worker Angel McClean is the definition of dedication.
