• To mark a chilly 50th anniversary of Dylan's arrival in NY, here's his "Talkin' New York": http://www.bobdylan.com/songs/talkin-new-york #
  • Big Qs for 1st day in #PoNY11 What is a waterfront? What's it for? Answers from early 20c economic historians and early 21c urban planners. #
  • What do *you* think a waterfront should be in the 21st century? Are you a fan of esplanades? Markets? Museums? Waterfront housing? #pony11 #
  • In the past, I've taken my class on a walking tour the 1st day. Not w/ today's temps! Maybe next week when we hit @seaportmuseumny. #pony11 #
  • #PoNY11 RT @cmonstah Accessibility to the water!!!! In places like NYC it's practically impossible to drop a kayak into the water. #
  • @cmonstah Some currents farther out in the bay wouldn't be amenable, but sticking closer to land? Sure! <3 Gov Island for that. #PoNY11 #
  • @cmonstah Thanks for the link to that story. It fits so perfectly with our #PoNY11 discussion today. What a great project, too. #twitterFTW #

  • What are waterfronts for? Interdisciplinary curriculum-based projects involving social media! http://t.co/s0c59zT via @mkgold #PoNY11 #

  • @rtmiyake Like your Twitter avatar. I think you'll enjoy @cpatell's lecture on Manhattan later this semester. #wny11 #
  • $2.98 for CCLNY used at amazon? What a bargain! #
  • Awesome. RT @_jakemoore washington irving as "jonathan oldstyle": the @wise_kaplan of the early 1800s. #wny11 #
  • RT @adamgolub A memoir that explores the myths & realities of Harlem: RT @nprbooks: Revisiting Harlem Renaissance http://n.pr/gadY1c #
  • @blackburnrecs @jennpelly Good Qs, but also ask what else might be happening. Do characters need to be realistic/introspective? #wny11 #
  • Lecturing on Tyler's The Contrast today. My whole understanding of this play was transformed by @metplayhouse: http://bit.ly/ggjA2H #wny11 #
  • I mentioned this cartoon in lecture in relation to The Contrast's use of Alknowmook: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqqUslNoCFc #wny11 #
  • A sign of our declining education system: when you reference a famous Loony Tunes episode and the joke falls flat because no one's seen it. #
  • Hey Hartford! RT @HBStoweCenter: 1/27 Uncle Tom's Cabin & Race On-stage w/@HartBeatEnsembl @metplayhouse;1/28 info:http://tiny.cc/tbx5u #
  • @jonathanrnash Yeah, I'll be there (bw). I have pretty strong opinions about how Maria and Manly should be read after @metplayhouse. #wny11 #
  • @jonathanrnash I'm actually blogging about it at the moment. Should be done sometime this afternoon. #wny11 #royalltyler #
  • Thx! RT @cire_e nice find. @boweryboogie @evgrieve @pwhny and @ everyone else @Vivnsect The LES in the 1960s and 1970s: http://bit.ly/hwzTlJ #
  • @jennpelly Ok, if forced to choose, I would take Blondie over The Contrast as a desert island pick. You've got me there. Don't tell! #
  • @jennpelly Gossip Girl is a long-standing guilty pleasure for at least one of the #wny11 profs. It does take some inspiration from Wharton! #
  • @amandamccc Well, Loony Tunes are from *my* dad's generation, so I can't complain too hard. Still: whatever happened to cultural literacy? #

  • @ashleyanndarcy Public love for lit is always a good idea. #wny11 #amlit #
  • @ashleyanndarcy Most of those come from "The Massacre of the Beards," an exquisite chapter in Melville's White-Jacket. Thx for the link. #
  • @amandamccc Not a problem at all. Comment away! #
