Max lives in Brooklyn near Prospect Park (his 585-acre “front yard”) with his wife (a native New Yorker) and two kids (future NYC history buffs). When he is not touring, Max spends quality time with his kids, finds peace and quiet in the kitchen (his new “realm”), or with a good book in a neighborhood coffee shop, and plans his next family travel adventure.
Max holds a BBA from Baruch College, City University of New York, and an MBA from New York University. To learn more about his story, click here.

Matt’s thirst for culture and entertainment drove him to the city after growing up outside Philadelphia and attending Ithaca College in upstate NY. Where else can you find top-shelf theater, world-class museums, eclectic music and exciting sports all in the same place on any given day? For Matt, New York City was always the answer.
Though Matt recently moved to Queens after living in Brooklyn for more than eight years, he still keeps it very Brooklyn in his spare time: searching for the perfect cold brewed iced coffee (even in the winter) and adding to his vinyl record collection.
He studied American History at Columbia University under Kenneth Jackson, one of the all time great historians of New York City. After college he worked in finance before heading back to school in Israel to study for an MA in Archeology from Bar Ilan University.
