About the title:

Founded in 2012, Wildsam began with a core idea: "The world was peopled with wonders." Steinbeck’s words tap into a timeless sentiment. Wonder is a transformative force. It strikes the match of our curiosity and jolts awake what Frederick Buechner calls the “original, shimmering self.” Wonder is also found in the stories of physical place, whether a Texas barbecue joint or the Golden Gate Bridge. Wildsam seeks out these real and rooted things, what’s truly authentic to a place, and share the pathways to deep connections in the world, for travelers and locals alike.

Edgy counterpart to Manhattan, Brooklyn’s main draw is its thriving and diverse neighborhoods, from Fort Green and Carroll Gardens, to Park Slope and Bed-Stuy.
