New York: City on a Grid
BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7
ON DEC 04, 2015
Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”
Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!
Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Why Forests Matter
"This is the Black-throated Green Warbler. I know how to do the birdcall for this, but I'll do it afterwards, I promise."
In Why Forests Matter from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Deputy Executive Director of the Nature Conservancy of Central & Western New York, Jim Howe, explains the three-part mission of organization: to protect land and water (120 million acres around the world, including 100,000 acres in Western and Central New York), to transform policy and practice for sustainability and to inspire people to connect with nature. Why do forests matter? Howe leads us on a tour of protected forest lands that provide imporved healthed and mental outlook, as well as critical habitats for wildlife. And Howe's Black-throated Green Warbler call was a show stopper!

It's with great sadness that we share with you news that PechaKucha Night in Paris organizer Dominique Playoust has passed away. Even though we had known Dominique was ill, the news came as a shock to us, and hit everyone at PechaKucha HQ very hard. Dominique had taken over as organizer two years ago, and he was very passionate about producing fantastic PechaKucha Nights, and that has always meant a lot to us. All our sympathies go out to his family and friends, and we also thank Paris team member Benoît Drouillat for sharing the news with us, and for offering to carry on the PKN torch in Paris.
PechaKucha in the British Journal of Photography
Last year, Paris Photo fair held a very special PechaKucha event for photographers to speak at a rapid pace on their works. The British Journal of Photography featured this PechaKucha function in their January 2013 print edition, and now on the web. Here's a slice of their editorial pie: ...Now the format has gone viral. More than  cities have held a Pecha Kucha night - from Eureka in Montana, a town of just 1500 people near the Canadian border, to Dubai and its ever-growing multinational community - and it's no longer confined to architects and designers. "People have realised that you don't need more than six minutes and 40 seconds to get your point across. Pecha Kucha presentations allow anyone to get up and present their latest work or passion, especially young entrepreneurs who may only have one project to their name and thus not enough for a full lecture," observes Dytham. And so far everyone from schoolchildren to yacht builders have adopted it, photographers included. By all means, check out the full article, it goes quite deep into the benefits of the format not only to photography, but all creative medium.
