Is this a good paragraph and what would be a good topic sentence for this paragraph?
I'm thinking of putting "My time in Brooklyn was full of enjoyment but it soon came to an end on the day I lost my ignorance. " for my topic sentence but i think it's kinda repetitive.. what do you think?
Paragraph starts here:
The smell of summer lingers the air in Brooklyn and varieties of birds chirp happily on bright green trees. Parks were packed with lively people engaging in sports. These people include my friends and me who used to hang out in these parks. We would do anything such as playing basketball and tag to occupy ourselves and time passed so fast like the speed of bullets going through cardboard. However, time soon stopped for me and everything turned upside down.
