NEW FEATURE - ROBINSON/DODGER VIDEO
The baseball page now features a video used for a recent "Jackie Robinson's Brooklyn" lecture - a five-minute run-through of photos concerning the Dodgers generally and Robinson in particular. Some of these shots may seem of no relevance but all figure in the story of the team and of Robinson's achievement. Click on the baseball link above and you'll see the video screen at the bottom-right portion of the page. Feel free to be in touch if you'd like a little background on any of these photos. They're telling.
OFFERING TOURS ANYWHERE IS A PLEASURE. IN THIS GREAT CITY IT IS AN HONOR
The fun of any class, lecture or tour is in the discovery, in the why and the how. Why, for example, is local wealth concentrated along Fifth Ave. while gas stations and factories are close to the water? How does Central Park make economic sense on an island where real estate is the world's most valuable? Why does the world trade in Manhattan more than anywhere else?
Our purpose in these presentations is not to fill the bucket but to light the fire, not to fill minds but to get a few inches of air between your feet and the ground. Maybe that happens now and then.
