In each installment of Public Streets, our blog series dreamed up and curated by Ellis Avery, a writer reflects on a locale—a neighborhood, park, city, street—of personal importance. Today, two years after its launch, there are 50 posts in the Public Streets archive. Contributors have explored nonconformist London cemeteries, visited Croatian islands where there are more sheep than people, scoped out the art scene in Bergen, Norway, and mused about John Cage while hunting for mushrooms in Green Mountain National Forest. As part of our August 1 Travel and Translation Issue, you can now explore the entire series on an interactive map. Scroll through the series using the arrows, or click on a pin to jump to a specific location. Double-click to zoom in; shift + double-click to zoom out.
Happy virtual travels!
