Category Archives: Not on the grid: East Troy WI

Welcome to my blog


Come to 42°47’44.2″N 88°23’55.0″W and you’ll find the Pulliam Nature Area. Four seasons of fun in southeastern Wisconsin. It’s named for my dad who moved to East Troy in the mid 1940s and fell in love with the post-glacial terrain. As he grew old and the farms morphed into housing developments, he said Let’s save the kettles. It happened! Now the residents live on the rim, their back yards dip into a nature area, and the streets are curved, not a grid.

But now I live on a grid in New York City, at N 40°48’1.9″ W 73°58’7.1″. And this is my new blog.
