Sometimes the world can feel a bit uniform: the same
department stores in every shopping mall, the same fast food chains on every
corner. A new book from the website Atlas
Obscura will make you reconsider that sense of monotony.
“The world is still this huge, bizarre, vast place
filled with astounding stuff,” says co-author Dylan Thuras. “And if
you sort of tilt your view a little bit and start looking for it, you start
finding it everywhere.”
To prove it, Thuras took NPR on a tour of the wonders in his
own backyard: Manhattan.
I just found this website called Atlas Obscura that is an entire database of unique spots around the world. I’ve been on it for a few hours now and I love some of these really obscure and bizarre places in America like California City and the Burro Schmidt Tunnel.
No joke I would so drive out to Cali just to see things of that sort.
