On Friday, Moriah took me on a tour of her favorite street art spots in Williamsburg. I was startled by the difference between what's going on there and what's happening here in Manhattan. The pulse of the people has clearly moved to Brooklyn, but with all the sterile luxury condos taking over the landscape, I don't know just how long it can stay there.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
