We published this graphic for Arbor Day, which was on April 30. It takes a look at all the trees that have been planted by the non-profit organization Casey Trees since 2003. They’ve planted thousands of trees in order to try to increase D.C.’s “urban canopy.” You can use this tool to see where they’ve planted trees in your neighborhood and what kind they are.
From a technical standpoint, this project was really interesting. It was executed in about two days, so it was a really quick turnaround, considering I haven’t done extensive development with the google maps api. Nathaniel and Gene worked up some cool custom tiles, and I designed and programmed a lot of it, and fit all the pieces together. Keep reading this post »
These pictures are a sum-up of a quintessential fall day, spent in four stages: a) kickball tournament (i got a single) b) cornfield maze (i’ve achieved a life-long dream) c) scouring the city for apple cider (we know it’s in that box!) and a fall favorite, tough-guy (excuse me, dirty) chai d) one bottle of wine + political debate = eating granola on the subway on the way to a house party in clarendon

HERSHEY,PA- In Hershey the air really does smell like chocolate, especially around the Hershey Lodge. I’m skeptical that the smell actually comes from the chocolate factory. I think it might come from smell-emitters around the hotel itself. But they are really strong, delicious emitters that make you think about your mama and her chocolate chip cookies. Yum.
Some pictures from the Hershey Gardens, which are beautiful. Fall is the best and most beautiful and good-smelling season, reminding us all of starting school, football games, and drinking hot chocolate without wearing gloves.
This sign just epitomizes how quaint Hershey is.
These cherries reminded me of a cherry tree I used to have at my old house in Franklin. The cherries were always really small and pink and we’d collect them for days.
