FROM New York, NY
Since 1987 I have indulged my passion for New York by giving classes, lectures and tours of its history. My focus is to go beyond the usual who-what-where-when and into the why and how – illustrated, for example, by a simple bend in a road, shape of a building or site of a church. Among those that have sponsored my tours are the Museum of Natural History and New York University, not to mention groups of all kinds around the world. I am a registered New York City tour guide, a member of the bar, and the author of a coming book on the ties between the history of New York and that of baseball.
New York as the focus of global affairs.
Doorway to the New World.
Who came and what did they find? What did they do with it and how does it matter?
Why Brooklyn? The drama unfolded in the little ballpark in the heart of Flatbush.
Making sense of New York City!
