From the Daily News:
A SELF-PROCLAIMED "urban explorer" who leads walking tours around Queens will be revealed today as the next borough historian, the Daily News has learned.
Jack Eichenbaum, 67, was chosen for the prestigious post to advocate for historic preservation and research, according to sources close to the decision.
The retired city assessor is set to be introduced to the media during a 3:30 p.m. news conference at Borough Hall in Kew Gardens.
Borough historians do not collect salaries, but they often use their official positions as a bully pulpit to document and save under-appreciated sites.
Bah, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!! Is that what they do? Here I thought their job was to keep mum while Borough Hall allowed the sites to be developed into crap.
