Meet the Author

Steve Mirsky is an avid outdoors man who has lived in Connecticut for most of his 36 years. From the Metacomet and Tunxis Trails in the northwest corner, to the little known Mohegan Trail that passes through the Mashantucket Pequot Reservation in Uncasville, to the 9-mile Larkin State Park beginning in Naugatuck and winding into the fast disappearing wilds of Fairfield County, Steve has covered many a bend, overlook, and rock outcropping on trails throughout the Nutmeg State on foot, snowshoes, and skis when the snow sticks around long enough. Steve has over 2 years experience as a freelance writer covering destination features, many of them focusing on outdoor attractions like Highline Park, a once abandoned elevated rail tressel above New York City's busiest streets now converted into an urban greenway for American Forest Magazine; kayaking the wide open aquamarine waters of Mariah Harbour National Park off Great Exuma in the Bahamas for GoNomad.com; and giving a first hand account of how The Wulff School of Fly Fishing in New York's Catskills keeps the intricate sport of fly fishing alive. Steve is also a regular blogger for Planeteye.com covering the latest local news, restaurant reviews, and unique cultural offerings in NYC. His other articles have covered Brooklyn’s Boro Park, the country’s largest Orthodox Jewish neighborhood; "The International Express", a hugely diverse conglomeration of neighborhoods in Queens, and Long Island's North Fork and the Hamptons. By day, Steve is a law reference librarian at the Connecticut State Library and lives in Hartford Connecticut.
