"I'll find my way home while exploring the galaxy"

Sonic Sketch x Beta Beats #2: Greenpoint

I think the neighborhood I will miss most while I'm abroad is Greenpoint, hands down. 

Four years ago, an agency job in a nondescript warehouse on West Street brought me to this charming North Brooklyn neighborhood, where I had the glorious luxury of walking two blocks a day to work, and spending many a summertime lunch break at Transmitter Park.

Three apartments and many favorite coffeeshops later, I've come to call this place my home.

This past Friday, the summery breeze inspired a spontaneous bike ride to Transmitter Park, probably my favorite bike ride in all of New York.

I found myself on the pier, meditating on the East River and noticing pockets of development springing up in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Then, my eyes catch the Williamsburg Bridge, a very special place that will always bring me back to the auspicious day when Wylie and I made the decision to leave New York and travel around the world. 

The beats pay homage to that breezy day on the pier, where everything was in its right place.
