Hi, I'm Rick Stachura. Welcome to Notes on New York. I cover happenings around the City in history, music, architecture, parks, preservation, the arts, and real estate. I also try documenting the daily absurdities, beautiful scenery, and affecting events that make this metropolis special. From February 2013 to June 2018, Notes was hosted on Tumblr. If you'd like to connect, please message me here: rick [at] notesonnewyork [dot] net. Thanks for stopping by!
