Constance Rosenblum, longtime editor and reporter at The New York Times, will discuss issues involved in writing about New Yorkers and the many and varied places they call home. In addition to her analysis of the elements that make a home in New York City distinctive, Rosenblum will discuss how she finds and chooses subjects, her interviewing techniques, and the ways in which she teases out larger themes inherent in individual stories.

Constance Rosenblum was editor of the Arts and Leisure section of The New York Times and a longtime editor of the paper’s City section. She is currently a reporter in The Times’s Real Estate section, where she wrote the Habitats column. A collection of expanded versions of the column were published earlier this year by NYU Press under the title Habitats: Private Lives in the Big City. Rosenblum is also the author of Boulevard of Dreams: Heady Times, Heartbreak, and Hope Along the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, the story of an iconic New York Street, and the editor of two collections of essays from the City section, New York Stories and More New York Stories.

Each lecture is followed by a lively Q&A session and refreshments in the D-Crit Reading Room. Thanks to the support of our partner, Mailchimp, lectures are free and open to the public, but you do need to register to reserve your space.
