Born in the Bronx, I've been dazzled by this City since my parents used to take me everywhere from the Lower East Side kosher restaurants to the Statue of Liberty (a landmark very few New Yorkers actually visit). And as a newspaper reporter, publisher of a community newspaper, and former real estate agent, I use all my experience to explore, investigate and understand the workings of this dynamic City.
