Today’s episode is not an interview. Today’s is a preview. It’s preview to a series that I’m working on called Sounds of the City. I literally walk around the city with a documentary microphone capturing the pulse, the heartbeat, the music, the voices, the sounds and sirens of a particular area in New York.
In this episode we’ll be listening to the Staten Island Ferry. I’ve been taking the ferry as far back as I can remember. I can remember as a kid, I always wanted to order something from the snack bar on the boat. My mom was always like “Nah, save your money…” I’m 40 years old and I still haven’t done it! I promise you next time of I’m on the ferry I’m getting a soft pretzel or a beer or both.
It’s one thing to commute on the ferry and it’s a whole other experience if you just stop and listen. I walked all around the boat with the microphone for an enhanced experience.
