I launched Manhattan User’s Guide in 1992, creating the first city newsletter. I’ve written several guide books to New York, including Manhattan User’s Guide, published by Hyperion, Shop TalkThe New York Times Guide to Hotels in New York City, The New York Holiday Guide, and contributed to City Secrets: New York and Design New York. 

In addition, I’ve written for The New York Times, Food & Wine, InStyle, Budget Travel, getTRIO, Diversion, Sidewalk, and New York Today.

A long time ago, I was one of the original producers of the Broadway musical Nick & Nora, which ran, following an extended preview period, for a grand total of nine performances.

I have a Tibetan Terrier named Nipsey.
