Lol-asg.png 29 / m / 40,-73

I just moved to New York! Morningside Heights, upper Manhattan. Excited to geohash throughout the tri-state area, especially on weekends. I used to live in 47,-122 for some years, where I discovered the strange magic of geohashing. I was born and raised in 42,-87 and have also lived in 40,-88 and 22,114.

I have no car so will be using transit, feet and/or bike to reach points.
