Kevin C. Fitzpatrick is a third-generation New Yorker with a voracious enthusiasm for all things related to the city's past, present, and future. He is the author and editor of seven books, all tied to New York City history. His most recent is World War I New York, A Guide to the City's Enduring Ties to the Great War. It won the Apple Award for best nonfiction book about New York from the Guides Association of NYC. He has also written guides to Governors Island, Jazz Age Manhattan, and literary landmarks. For 20 years he's been leading walking tours and is a licensed NYC sightseeing guide. He gives tours of places as diverse as Woodlawn Cemetery and the Statue of Liberty, which he has climbed more than 200 times. In his spare time Kevin and his friend own a vintage FDNY fire engine that they are restoring. Kevin lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with his family.New York native Joe Conzo Jr. is known as “The Man Who Took Hip Hop’s Baby Pictures.” Born and raised in the Bronx, Joe Conzo Jr. acquired a passion for photography as a young boy attending the Agnes Russell School on the campus of Columbia University. He continued his formal artistic education at the School of Visual Arts (NYC). He has photographed all the greats of Hip Hop, and his images appear in the seminal book, Born In The Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hop. His entire collection will reside in the permanent Hip Hop archive at Cornell University. Joe continues to lecture, meet with young people, exhibit his work, and participate in international events.
