Our names are Melissa and Sammy, and we’d like to welcome you to 44 Water Street, your friendly neighborhood water blog.
There are a lot of worthwhile water websites out there, but we offer something different. While we’ve both studied water, we write about it not from an academic perspective, but rather from a personal perspective. We’re interested in sharing observations and ideas about water, based on our travel experiences and backed up by research, photos, and the occasional bad pun.
Since getting started in June, we’ve written about topics ranging from the impending closure of the National Aquarium in Washington, D.C., to blue spaces surrounding Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River, to waterfront development and nontraditional green spaces in Baltimore. (We like to travel.) For a broader look at the importance of addressing the world’s water challenges, check out our welcome post.
We love writing about water, and we hope that 44 Water Street can become a community for fellow water enthusiasts, a place where everyone is welcome to share their water stories. If you’re interested in contributing to 44 Water Street—or if you have any questions, comments, or ideas you’d like to share—you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at us @44waterstreet. We’d love to hear from you.
For now, happy reading. We hope you’ll make yourself at home. Just don’t forget to turn off the tap!
