Urban Studies Program
Kathryn Trainor (M.A. 2012)
"I know urban studies will continue to inform my work and has truly reinforced my passion for supporting communities in this great city"
"I was able to leverage my academic studies on public space and urban development as well as my professional experience. My Urban Studies internship also helped as I worked with interest groups around the city. I'm very excited for this opportunity to work closely with communities and learn about the issues they face in their neighborhoods through this really interesting medium of parks!"
As curator of the Hudson River Collection for the Fordham University Libraries, Professor Roger Panetta sits at the epicenter of a golden age for local history. Born and bred in Brooklyn, Panetta's interests follow the borough’s history. He is a visiting scholar at the Brooklyn Historical Society, where he is researching the Brooklyn/Manhattan ferries, as well as the history of the Manhattan skyline—as seen from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.
