I'm headed down to the Gowanus section of Brooklyn this afternoon for this month's Secret Science Club lecture. It's nice to have this particular routine back in my life, the ritual of taking the subway from the end of the line in the Bronx to downtown Brooklyn. In this year's trips, I've been walking from the Atlantic Avenue subway station to the beautiful Bell House, which I've been doing since the shooting on the R Train, my usual transfer from the 4 Train. Luckily, there's a really good Middle Eastern bakery along the way.
It's comforting to be able to return to this important part of my life after two years, and even better to see my Brooklyn friends, who are actually from the entire NYC metro area. Being able to recap it for you folks is the icing on the cake.
