As I strolled around lower Manhattan doing these flipwalks, I scribbled notes in a 99-cent memo book, three inches by five inches. They usually would jog my memory when I wrote up the walk later on, although sometimes, years later, a particular comment would seem cryptic, and I’d skip over it. Other times, a whole walk’s worth of notes would become completely opaque to me, like this set, written with a green felt-tip pen:
Cockpit down to 3
Caracas, Kobe, York
We’re businessmen / midday is just trippy
no 3-yr reveal right away
labor–it’ll be good fungus
“You just insulted yourself!”
I ended this random journey on the southern edge of the World Trade Center site, taking pictures of destruction, firemen, and the Deutsche Bank building–just like all the other tourists.
