Aly Carlotti grew up in Brooklyn and doesn’t plan on leaving. A few years ago, Aly fell hard into a history hole; a hole of New York City history, to be exact. A public school teacher by day, Aly found time in her off-hours to attend countless walking tours across Manhattan and Brooklyn, reading any book she could find about the city. Researching the past helped replace her intermittent disdain for the noisy streets, cold winters, and subway rats with a swelling sense of pride and appreciation. She hopes to share this feeling with others and encourages all to advocate for the preservation of their own city’s historical landmarks.
