The More You Know: New York Edition

Here’s a list of places in New York with Anglicized Dutch Names:

Flatbush
Brooklyn
Midwood
Bedford-Stuyvesant
Boerum Hill
Lefferts Manor
Coney Island
Gerritsen Beach
Gowanus
New Utrecht (duh)
Red Hook

Bed- Stuy, Boerum, Lefferts, and Gerritsen are all family names, but the rest are from words.
I haven’t even begun to look at Manhattan.

Why are only Google related sites working?

Dutch Word of the Day
samenwerzing: conspiracy

Wat is met dit Google samenwerzing?
What is with this Google conspiracy?

I love the Google Empire as much as the next man, but I love the rest of the internet as well. How come the only sites I have able to acess for the past half hour have been Blogger, Flickr, YouTube, G-Mail and Google itself? and very quickly, too.

Although Flickr’s directly Yahoo related, it has Blogger friendly features. These are the only things I can get to. New York Times, Wikipedia, Facebook, everything else is of limits. Maybe they have the strongest server, but this still very strange.

I can’t access Amherst.edu to check my email. (I tried Williams.edu just for kicks, but I can’t reach them either so I guess it’s not their fault…this time.)

Still working on finals. Knocked out a huge paper today with two more to go. Yum.
