The holidays are upon us, and even though 2020 was a year most of us would like to forget, here at the Avenue Property Group we’re excited to put together and share our Best of 2020 list. Just as in year’s past, our list includes our favorite stories, books, podcasts, music, movies, shows, and products of the year.
In a year where this list could easily have been the ‘Worst of 2020’, we’d like to encourage you to contribute. We’re interested to hear what you think of the list, and how yours would differ from ours. So we’re leaving commenting turned on below. So let us have it!

Sea level—perpetual flux. There is a micromillimetre on the surface of the ocean that moves between sea and sky and is simultaneously both and neither. Every known life-form exists in relation to this layer. Above it, the world of land, air, sunlight, and lungs. Below it, the world of water, depth, and pressure. The deeper you go, the darker, the more hostile, the less familiar, the less measured, the less known.
