As I was down in the Village yesterday, I decided to walk over to the Meatpacking District to check out the walls, etc. Not much is happening. It seems as though the street art "scene" is almost entirely in Brooklyn these days. But I did come across some pieces by Ian Strange aka Kid Zoom. They didn't do much for me, but I was happy something was happening in my borough, besides the fabulous stickers that catch my eye every day.
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.
