WHAT: New York City residents, authors and professors, Daniel J. Wakin and Stephen Wolf, share their stories and insights to hidden local gems, woven into not only the fabric of their lives, but the pages of their most recent books, Central Park Love Song: Wandering Beneath the Heaventrees and The Man with the Sawed-Off Leg and Other Tales of a New York City Block.

Daniel J. Wakin (left) has been an editor and reporter at The New York Times since 2000. He has worked as a foreign correspondent, metro reporter, and culture writer and is currently an editor on the Obituaries Desk. A graduate of Harvard University with a degree in the Classics, Mr. Wakin lives on the Upper West Side. The Man With the Sawed-Off Leg and Other Tales of a New York City Block is his first book. 

Stephen Wolf was born in Chicago and, with a doctorate from the University of Illinois, moved to the Lower East Side in 1977, blocks from where his grandparents once lived. His fiction has appeared in Playboy, Ploughshares, and the anthology American Families.  His story cycle “Intimate Articles” was published by Ten Speed Press. He is the editor of I Speak of the City: Poems of New York and most recently, the author of Central Park Love Song.  Dr. Wolf teaches literature and the humanities at Berkeley College.
