Good afternoon all,

I don't normally put out requests, but I am a subscriber and do have a need.

Would there be anyone out there on the list who could speak to the culture
and social history of New York.  A correspondent of ours, Alexandra Marks,
is looking for an expert on the things that affect/have affected New Yorkers
throughout history.  This seemed like the best forum I could find for this.

Many thanks for any help offered.
