20 miles later, some sore feet, and a few podcast episodes later, we finally made it to Brooklyn. While it was our first challenging day of the trip, we made it to open arms and comfortable beds in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. The picture above was taken at the Crescent Street 2 train stop. We somehow managed to fit a church steeple, a subway stop, and our massive cart all into one frame. It is a perfect encapsulation of the contrast between the high-stress, frantic pace of New York, and the slow-burn, patience guiding our walk. Hopefully the slow speed of our walking will continue allowing us to appreciate little moments like this.
A special shout-out to Jack MacGregor, Nick D’Agostino, and Carter McNeil for warmly welcoming us into their home and sharing their cold beverages with us. A special shout-out to Jeff Marino for traveling the four subway stops to Bed-Stuy to bid adieu to us, and to partake in our interviews for the evening.
Expect our first posts in the Stories page to pop up soon! We wrapped up our interviews late in the evening, but hope to have them to you within the next day or so.
Off to the Brooklyn Bridge in the morning, followed by a trek to the Upper West Side!
