Brooklyn on foot
Taking a break from theater, fellow Drama Desk member and Medill grad Adrienne Onofri has written her first book, Walking Brooklyn, which Wilderness Press will publish next month. The book offers 30 tours exploring historical legacies, neighborhood culture, side streets, and waterways, and the excerpt she gave me pretty much takes me right outside my doorstep to Fort Greene, where Richard Wright wrote Native Son and where Spike Lee and Marianne Moore have called home. Sounds like a good reason to get outside and give my legs a stretch this summer.
