Gay Talese’s underground writing bunker — The New Yorker has a short video feature on journalist Gay Talese’s home office, which is located beneath his townhome in what used to be a wine cellar. 
Talese now decorates it with collages of his stories and keeps a wide assortment of files and notes from each piece and story he’s worked on — going back decades. 
What amused me greatly was to see how Talese takes his notes. As a former journalism student, I’m always fascinated how journalists take notes as there’s no one “right” way to do it. Talese’s method works for him and I think it’s pretty cool.
