The way I was researching a certain topic today was different from usual. I wasn’t exposed to this way of researching in my past experience. I would usually research the typical way, with the help of the internet. It felt like the old fashion way and was interesting to get a taste of that even though I was using a computer “again” to look at pictures. It took some actual researching not like the maps or books that were handed straight to us. I would like to look at them when I get a chance. Louis and I looked up key terms such Red hook New York, storms and hurricanes.
- I noticed that the fences to keep the water from destroying everything during a storm were made of wood.
- Houses and boats also made of wood.
- Certain houses would be built “close” to the shore.
- The bottom or the first floor of a house would be supported by thin wooden columns. Did not look like the weight was spread. Mass of 2 floors supported by thin wooden columns next to the shore.
