During the Great Recession, Daniel Seddiqui set out to work a different job in all 50 states. Now, he tours the country yet again during his “A Piece of Your City” tour, in which he makes a hands-on connection with locals and their crafts.
Seddiqui has completed three tours around the United States. His first, “50 Jobs in 50 States” was in 2009, then, almost a decade later, he did the “American Bucket List” tour and finally his current project, “A Piece of Your City.”
As part of his latest tour, Seddiqui stopped in Wilmington where he visited several incredible places to gain a hands-on connection with local Delawareans. He walked along the six–mile stretch of the Jack A. Markell Trail, which travels from Battery Park in New Castle to the Riverfront. Then he went to the Chase Fieldhouse, home of the Delaware Blue Coats, and even stopped at the Hotel du Pont to make macaroons with executive pastry chef Leah Steinberger.
One of his favorite spots to visit was the Hagley Museum in Greenville to learn about the local history and the black powder industry.
This excursion was his third time in the First State and allowed him to gain more of an understanding of the rich history of the East Coast. In 2009 during his first tour, he worked for Corporations & Companies Inc., then almost a decade later during his second tour he went to Tower Hill High School to learn lacrosse.
