About me"Effingham Park" was a late 19th- and early 20th-century real estate development in Gravesend, Brooklyn that never really got beyond the naming stage. I’ve lived within its boundaries all my life, and since I likely have the largest collection of books in the neighborhood, it seems fitting that I should be named after the forgotten Effingham Park.

My book, GRAVESEND, BROOKLYN, a title in Arcadia Publishing's "Then & Now" series, was released in 2009. It is available in print and electronic forms through major retailers like Barnes & Noble,, or directly from the publisher:
