AUTHOR | HISTORIAN | TRAVEL & POLITICS | NEW YORK CITY EXPERT

I am the author of three books about New York City: Frommer's 24 Great Walks in New York (Wiley), Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City (Free Press/Simon & Schuster), and most recently, Footprints in New York: Tracing the Lives of Four Centuries of New Yorkers (Lyons/Globe Pequot). With my wife and frequent collaborator, I've recently finished a complete revision of ​Fodor's 25 Best New York.


I also write various articles about travel, American politics and culture, New York City history, architecture, and culture, and have appeared on radio, tv, and in print as an expert on New York's rich past.
