He is editor-at-large for Non-Stop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas (forthcoming) and is co-editor of the Oxford Handbook of the Harlem Renaissance (forthcoming). His current research interests are the promise and perils of metropolitan life, the relationship between commerce and creativity, and the phenomenology of walking.
