Here's a blast from the past (stat logs bring up old memories!), February 2000 to be exact. That was the Targum/Kris/Louis St. era, pre-Ben, pre-internship, pre-blog (just barely -- oh yeah, I think the blog is is about to turn six) even pre-Snickers, I think.
Anyway, here is my little personal photo project (taken with my big Christmas gift that year, my first digital camera) documenting my typical walk to class and work during the spring semester of my sophomore year at Rutgers:
The apartment @ Louis Street Leaving said apartment, normally I shield my eyes from evil sunlight as soon as I open the front door. Big photo! Click!
Louis Street Make a right and head down Louis Street, toward Hamilton Street. Big photo! Click!
Ale 'n 'wich Continue around the corner of Louis and Hamilton, passing Ale 'n 'wich. Big photo! Click!
Hamilton Street Walk down the ugly (uglier) section of Hamilton Street, past the cleverly-named Ta-Ta's Pizza and White Lotus Futon. Big photo! Click!
Hamilton and Easton Continue through the intersection of Hamilton Street and Easton Avenue. Big photo! Click!
Easton Avenue The section of Easton Avenue, heading toward George Street and the downtown area, is where the majority of bars, restaurants and stores frequented by the college kids are. Big photo! Click!
Hamilton - College Ave. Keep walking down Hamilton, onto the beginnings of official University property. Big photo! Click!
Frat Row A left onto Union Street would lead toward the raucus fun of Frat Row. Big photo! Click!
Old Queens After crossing College Avenue, Old Queens Campus, which houses a lot of administrative buildings, will be on the right. Big photo! Click!
Old Queens Gate Old Queens is the original Rutgers Campus. The school was originally called Queens College when it was founded in 1766. It's definitely the most beautiful part of Rutgers. Big photo! Click!
Vorhees Mall Across the street from Old Queens is Vorhees Mall, where all of the academic buildings on the College Avenue campus are. It's a huge, beautiful lawn with paths, the buildings lay along the perimeter. Big photo! Click!
Scott Hall My class, Theater Appreciation, was in the lecture hall at Scott, one of the Vorhees buildings. Big photo! Click!
Murray Murray Hall is across from Scott, and to the left of the Art History Library. Most of the English and Comparative Lit. classes are in this building. Big photo! Click!
Silent Willie From class, it's usually time to head to Targum ... I walk across Vorhees Mall and past Silent Willie, named so because legend has it he whistles at all virgins who pass, but at Rutgers the population is full of sluts. Big photo! Click!
College Avenue Make a left out of Vorhees Mall and a right onto College Avenue, where Frats and churches coexist, peacefully? Big photo! Click!
RSC The Rutgers Student Center is on the left. The Targum's offices are on the third floor, in an annoyingly small suite that doesn't fit our needs. Big photo! Click!
