boston food challenge? lets do it.

I have been embracing Boston more in the past few months, and Jessica's Chicago food challenge has inspired me to do one of my own. The map above shows the 21 official neighborhoods in Boston. Perhaps by documenting eats in each of these neighborhoods, Aaron and I will see a bit more of our new-ish home. It's difficult though, because I want to also explore the neighborhoods and food of Cambridge, Brookline, and the 30 or so sub-neighborhoods of my very own Dorchester. However, I'm going to assume it's unlikely that I'll complete the task of 21 neighborhoods in the next 12 months, so it's pointless to take on more.

By the way, I'm just loving Dorchester and am still baffled by the fear of Boston toward this area. I was informed by a friend recently of the negative health impact of living in bad neighborhoods. Wha? It's like the suburbs out where with mixed races and sometimes vandalism. Let's suck it up people.

New York Magazine did a piece on former Blues Clues host Steven Burns Williamsburg home. Very cool. And I love that it's blue.

neglect. new york.

wow. It's been a while. I was getting that feeling that, since I've neglected this blog for so so long, that any return must be a triumphant one. I've done so many things this summer. Traveled to mexico, newport folk festival, wisdom teeth out, brief but wonderful chicago trip, katie came to visit, I went to visit katie, matt came to town, and so on....

I was feeling like I needed to post about each of these things to come back. but the past is the past. Then I was thinking about switching to a tumbler. this may still happen. but in the meantime I'll start posting again. Why not?

sorry for the neglect.

in the meantime, here are a few shots from my recent new york trip. I had a great time with my sister, and caught some awesome New Yorker festival events. It was my first time in NYC when the weather was actually nice. Fun!
