Urbanist, blogger, scholar, budding filmmaker, and self-declared philosopher.

David J. Goodwin is the author of the award-winning Left Bank of the Hudson: Jersey City and the Artists of 111 1st Street (Fordham University Press: 2017).

He is currently working on a biography of H.P. Lovecraft as a Frederick Lewis Allen Room writer at the New York Public Library.

When he’s not puttering in his garden,  he’s usually reading a book.

Little else is important.

  1. Thank you for the comments on the artist August Will. I often wonder what happened to his works also but suspect they might be now in the collection of Dineen at HCCC. There was a court case regarding the payment of storage of the collection.


    1. If I’m not mistaken, the collection of the Jersey City Museum–which included Will’s works–is being transferred to Rutgers. Although I wish the art would remain in JC, it’s probably for the best. The art can be properly maintained at Rutgers, and people can study and enjoy it. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
