Intimate Reflections and Recollections – Buffalo, New York 1967-2020
City of My Heart is about a man, a city and the ancestral ties of family, faith, heritage and place that bind people to each other and to their community. Accompany Mark Goldman, PhD '73, on his more than fifty-year journey as this New York City boy finds meaning and purpose by wrapping himself in the blanket of Buffalo, New York’s history, creating intimate and passionate ties to the people living in its rich, diverse and declining neighborhoods. City of My Heart combines autobiography and narrative history in a unique and compelling way. An ode, a paean to the Buffalo he not only came to know but helped to grow, a city whose spirit lured him in, and to which he, in turn, has long and joyfully given back, it reveals as much about the city as about its iconic author.
