About the Author


For over fifty years Mark Goldman's life has been intertwined with the life of the City of Buffalo. His work as an historian, as a teacher, as the creator of the Calumet Arts Cafe and the Allen Street Hardware Cafe, in addition to his extensive engagement in some of the most important public policy debates of our times, has provided him with unique insights into the recent history of the city. Written passionately in the first person, City of My Heart is a valentine to Buffalo that reveals as much about the author as it does about Buffalo, the city of his heart.
