|Location||Manhattan, NY, United States|
|Introduction||I became a tour guide (and humble amateur historian) after I got my first pair of in-line skates in the mid 90s. First I realized how small the island actually is. Then it became a fascination to decode the historical layers of this urban puzzle. Every part of town tells its own story, through the myriad re-purposing of buildings, to streets that defy the grid, to the hills and valleys barely detectable in the asphalt. Unlocking that information is why I started this blog.|
|Interests||In-line skating, Exploring and photographing, Manhattan, giving tours, NYC history, reading (mostly nonfiction), writing, editing, Judge Judy|
|Favorite Movies||Fargo, The Hangover, Goodfellas, The Color Purple, The Sopranos (there should be a movie)|
|Favorite Music||80s, The Beatles, Opera (great for skating to)|
|Favorite Books||As You Pass By, Mannahatta, New York: A Physical History, The Other Islands of New York, the Columbia Historic Portrait of New York, and 97 others|
