Landmarks: New York featured at DNAinfo.com

Landmarks: New York” was featured yesterday in a great article at DNAinfo.com, an online news service focused on Manhattan news.

The article highlights how the app makes it easy to find “undiscovered architectural jewels” throughout the city.  It includes a slideshow of screen shots of the app (plus a headshot of me, which I thought was a bit much for the article, but hey, they asked for one) and a good overview of the app’s functionality.

The best part of the article, for me, is that it really captured so well what I hope to accomplish with the app.  As the lede states:

Nobody misses Grand Central Station, but many of the city’s 1,300 landmarked schools, cemeteries, churches and synagogues are easily overlooked — and the developer of one new mobile application hopes to change that.

Happy holidays, and look for some key updates and new versions (Portland, Boston, and Chicago — here we come) in the new year!
