The Captain Wants To Farm In Brooklyn

It may sound lame, but I think maps are cool. 

For real. 

Something about the idea of plotting and charting the physical landscape that surrounds us is very appealing to me.  A couple of weeks back I was enthralled by a story from the New York Times about a recently discovered map.  The Brooklyn Historical Society came into possession of a map of New York City from 1770.  That’s six years older than our country!  Even more remarkable is that they were able to fully restore the map from this to this.

Amazing!  And the map is extremely interesting viewing.  Brooklyn is all farm land!  Great story and great pictures; you should check it out.

Ciao,

The Captain
