The Ferris Files has been so quiet recently that you might wonder if your trusty outdoor correspondent died suddenly without leaving a forwarding URL. Did a giant swell at Ocean Beach bury David’s head in the sand? Did he run too far up a trail and into a pride of hungry bobcats?
I'm writing to tell you that reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated and that the adventure continues here:
That’s right, A Year In New York. I've moved to the Big Apple for a year! From July 2008 until July 2009, I am reporting every day for 365 days from the biggest, liveliest, most rat-infested hive of activity America has ever known, New York City.
What is it like to be a newcomer to America’s premier city at the beginning of the 21st Century? What sort of trouble can an outdoor adventurer find in deep urban canyons, on an island surrounded by fast-moving rivers, with a little open space known as Central Park?
That’s what I’m looking to create in a daily snapshot. Have a look, and post a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
