At the Hunter College Center for Community Planning and Development I’ve started, participated in and directed a host of projects in New York City. They include community plans, environmental impact analyses, working papers on sustainability, and studies of Walmart, Willets Point, Flushing Commons and other economic development issues.

I was a founding member of Planners Network in 1975 and have been involved with it since. Planners Network is an association of professionals, activists, academics, and students involved in physical, social, economic, and environmental planning in urban and rural areas, who promote fundamental change in our political and economic systems. I co-edit the Progressive Planning Magazine, which is published by Planners Network, and am a member of the organization’s Steering Committee. You can join, get back issues of the magazine, and find out about conferences by clicking on Planners Network above in bold letters.

In March 2010 I started Prospect Farm, a community project that grows healthy food and improves the soil in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn (New York). Members work cooperatively and build community.
