Archery is a sport. I googled it.
And for the more precise purpose of this blog, if you live in NYC, archery is a fun, active way to spend a Saturday night with friends. Which is exactly what I did a few weeks ago.
Gotham Archery (who did not pay me to write this post, but should recruit me to become an instructor) is located in a warehouse on Baltic Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn. For my non-NYC readers, what this means is that I’m really cool for knowing about it.
Now, I’m no expert archer. Trust me, I’d have mentioned any sort of kitshy Paleolithic Era-talent upfront. The last time I shot a bow and arrow was in sleep away camp 15 years ago and also in a dream I had where I was Katniss Everdeen (reoccurring nocturnal theme).
