Garrett Van Reed


Garrett Van Reed has been living in Kraków and writing about the city for over a decade now. Originally from outside Philadelphia (US) and now in his 30s, he is a culture and history buff with a keen sense of the absurd which surrounds him. He relishes beer gardens, wild, unexplored places and staying up all night, while missing baseball fields, big cases of beer, and back yards. He enjoys Arctic literature, has a serious man-crush on Tadeusz Kościuszko and despises pigeons. He currently lives with his partner, Gosia, two kids and two cats in Podgórze, which he claims is the absolute best part of the city for exactly five months of the year; for the other seven he prefers Stary Port.
