A recent article in one of The Economist’s blog Prospero concerning the “literary Renaissance” in Brooklyn (something that has actually been going on for nearly two decades now) got me thinking about the idea of location and creativity.

The Route

The Route

I truly hated this paper route. I hated it but I knew that suffering this route was the price I would have to pay until someone else gave up one of the better routes, the ones in the areas where you were actually given tips from the customers. The customers on this route didn’t tip, […]
