Water, Water Everywhere

I attended Conflux 2007 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the suggestion of Rachel Adams, who is teaching “Widespread-Content: Mapping.” The most enjoyable thing all day was taking a walk in Williamsburg guided by a fictional hurricane evacuation story called “Water, Water Everywhere” by Jennifer Treuting. I’ve created a map of my walk that is a subset of the map she presented.

It’s interesting how a made up story was able to give me a context with which to explore a new area — and remember it very well. Usually when I’m walking in the city, there is nothing to anchor memories and I never know the stories behind the places I see.
