What is the New York Times City Room blog looking at today on the internets? Why, it’s the three subway road trip itineraries that I put together for WNYC!

"Off the Beaten (Subway) Track" on WNYC!

with one comment

Hear my thoughts on taking a “subway road trip” here. (I come in about 1 minute and 45 second into the piece), then read three suggested “subway road trip” itineraries here. I’m so excited that I’m shaking!

Thanks to Benjamen Walker for including me in his excellent story on “staycations!”

OTBST Guest Blogs at NYU!

with one comment

I’m pleased to announce that I was invited to guest post today at the NYU Arts and Science Blog! I used the opportunity to suggest a few small museums near NYU’s Washington Square campus, and proposed a short “subway road trip” that is easy to embark upon from the NYU area.

Thanks to Evan Nisenson at the Office for University Development and Alumni Relations at the Faculty of Arts and Science for his enthusiasm for the book, and his help!

OTBST on the Radio (Oh, Oh, Oh)

with 2 comments

Thanks to a friend, a producer from WNYC (the NPR affiliate in New York) contacted me about doing a taped segment for Weekend Edition Saturday! I met him today on the L train, and we talked about the many cool things that there are to do in New York in August. As soon as it airs, I’ll link to the podcast. I’m pretty much jumping up and down and squealing as I type this, but I promise I was (slightly) more articulate when we rode the train with a camp group from Williamsburg. It was fun! I hope I get more opportunities like this.
