I’ll be spending the second half of 2021 in the Bronx as a Fulbright Scholar., getting to know the borough and its people, working alongside a local community organization of tenants and advocates campaigning for more and better, truly affordable homes. I’ll also be asking whether there are signs of recovery from the multiple shocks and traumas of the last 18 months.

Bronx Tales will record some of my thoughts and experiences. I welcome questions, comment and debate (provided they’re not abusive).
