About the Site

This Web site represents a labor of love. I began noticing gargoyles and other creatures lurking on the buildings of my native New York when I was a child, and over time, my appreciation for these often hidden works and the anonymous artistans who created them, has grown.

Thanks are due to David Ryan, who shot many of the images on this site, and who helped to guide and improve my own image-gathering abilities.

A Love of Monsters: Gargoyles & Architectural Details in NYC the Web site has garnered some notice since it went online in the spring of 1995. Thanks to USA Today, The Chicago Tribune, @NY and The Houston Chronicle for reviewing or pointing to the site, and especially to Fashion Television for allowing me to be an on-air commentator for their segment on New York gargoyles in the winter of 1997.
