Fun, informative and a little bit scandalous
a perfect walking tour!!! The pacing is great, calming and meditative. The information makes the city come alive, as burnside tells us not just the history of the city but the weaves stories and characters that combine with the contemporary urban landscape to make a simple stroll into an adventure through time and space.
Engages the senses
Great storytelling to learn about place and history. He does more than describe what is seen; he tells how it feels and sounds. I can still imagine the rough post tops of the iron fence around Bowling Green park.
Speed it up man! Deadly slow narrative pacing.
