Hi everyone..another one into the fray here my name is Valentin. I grew up in New York City, namely The Bronx, near The Grand Concourse which is a beautiful blvd. also grew up in Newburgh, NY on the western bank of the Hudson River..Newburgh, a former industrial town that has since joined the rust belt of many Hudson River cities. picked up a Geography degree at Salem State College outside of Boston. spent some time in the private and public sector there after for a few years before going to back to school. I am currently finishing up my Masters degree in Urban Planning at the U. of Louisville in KY. I came down here inititally to learn about the city's efforts to plan a light rail line.
I look foward to hearing from others on the boards...cheers, Valentin
