One of my fears when I opened this website was that I wouldn't find the time or have the motivation to keep it as current as the Age of the Internet requires. Well, as the Delphic Oracle counseled, "Know thyself." Or it may be that my wife, Betty's, comment, "You are a low tech guy in a high tech world" is oh-so-true.
In truth, it's been quite a couple of years. I've moved from NYU to Fordham University. My book on 24-hour cities has come out, and won the Gold Award for books from the National Association of Real Estate Editors. I've continued to write, speak, research, and travel. And all of this despite having a couple of cataract surgeries and two vascular surgeries for DVTs. Ain't gettin' old grand? (I'll be 69 on January 24th). In 2016 and 2017, my father-in-law passed away at 93, Betty and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary (now @ 41!) and our daughter Joanna and her beau Casey tied the knot. So life hasn't been dull.
Nevertheless, it's time to start repopulating the website with new material under the navigation headers, and to see whether this blogging thing is something that suits me.
