Sorry. It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post. Things have been pretty crazy the past couple of months, but now that I’ve settled back in on my native coast I can fill you in on what’s happened recently:
I drove back to New York. New York City, that is.
When I moved to California from New York three years ago I did the drive in four days. I did the reverse drive in about five days. I also logged the entire trip in Google Latitude thanks to the new location history app. Here are 450 data points from my drive. I’m not sure how that single St. Louis plot got there. I may have drifted off the road into a vortex or something.
I also took some crappy, and relatively boring pictures along the way with my iPhone, geo-tagged for your viewing pleasure.
I moved to Brooklyn. Greenpoint, that is.
Greenpoint is a fun little Polish neighborhood located in the north part of Brooklyn. I love it so far. It’s a lot cleaner and quieter than Williamsburg, but is only a 10 minute subway ride away for when I get brave enough to face the hipsters. I’m also 15 minutes away from Manhattan, and less than 30 minutes away from work.
There’s also a lot of great food, coffee shops, and stores around. My street looks like this.
I’m working in Manhattan. Chelsea, that is.
It’s great. I sold my car and commute on the subway. My building looks like this. The Google office in NYC is definitely a lot smaller than the Mountain View office, but it’s still very exciting and there a lot of fun things going on all the time. Plus, it’s in NYC. California doesn’t have a NYC.
I’m hoping to get back into blogging once again now that I finally have internets in my apartment. There’s a lot of stuff going on around here. I should have made this move a long time ago.
