As of this month, I'm happy to say that I'm now a graduate of the Pratt Institute Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development.

If you're interested in waste management, environmental justice, or New York City's waterfront, my graduate thesis is now available online at Academia.edu

I wrote most of my thesis before work and on the weekends, on and off for a year, and it was a memorable experience. I wrote my thesis in Scrivener and created maps in QGIS which I hope to write a little about soon.

My professor at Pratt belatedly accepted the Jane Jacobs medal for lifetime acheivement last night (the awards ceremony was originally scheduled for last fall but was cancelled by Sandy). 

I loved the video below (and not just because I'm in it). It reaffirmed what makes the type of planning I'd like to practice important. Congratulations Ron!
