“For a Student of the City, It’s Always New 

Andrew S. Dolkart: A Chronicler of New York Old and New”

By Matt A.V. Chaban

If you’re curious about a particular building in New York, odds are that Andrew S. Dolkart knows something about it. Mr. Dolkart, the 62-year-old director of Columbia University’s Historic Preservation program, spends many Sundays wandering the city with his husband, Paris R. Baldacci, 70, a law professor at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Mr. Dolkart, in recognition of his tireless study of New York old and new – he has written dozens of books and essays, and is working on a book about the garment district – will receive the Historic Districts Council’s Landmarks Lion award on Nov. 19.
