Visiting the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Memorial Day Weekend

Now that I'm up and running here, the time has come to kick the tires a bit. At the very least, I hope you are here to do the same. There's a lot of ground I want to cover. This will be a new blog that takes the energy I've contributed in the past and strips it down considerably. Connected to that simplification is my desire to get this site out there before I begin shopping around the book I'm writing. So look for faster content. More mobile contributions. Images. Less polish - if that's what I should call what I did in the past. More brevity. Yes, that is an oxymoron. Sue me.

To start, I spent a hearty hunk of my day in Brooklyn at the Navy Yard. The good folks at Turnstile Tours offer a few different ways of seeing the history that's out there. Today was a World War II-era tour that perfectly coincides with an obscure origin story angle I'm pursuing. I can't say enough good about what they do out there. Check back for some photos, too.
