day +136

I had planned to read a bit last night, but instead I got swept up by both the Republican and Democratic Iowa Caucuses. I find it to be a thrilling night as I switched back and forth from network to network to see the incoming results and what the political pundits were discussing about the various candidates and the significance of Iowa in the road to each party's nomination.

As it was still quite frigid today, I stayed in but tomorrow it's supposed to be much better. As usual, I caught up on the day's news, read the latest updates on some of my friends' blogs, and browsed the Web. Today's Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC had what I found to be a very interesting interview called, "Water, Water, Everywhere," which focuses on the new 30-minute documentary film, City of Water, that examines the role that NYC's historic waterways have had and how they are being reshaped today. This film was co-produced by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, one of a dozen or so other organizations in the city that I've found which works to bring greater awareness to the importance of preserving and improving the public's accessibility to the beauty of the city's waterfront.

I'm very interested in checking out this documentary film. The next screening will be on February 2nd at the South Street Seaport Museum.
