David Feldman has a degree in English Literature. After retiring from a varied career as a newspaper reporter, school teacher, shipwright, housewright, etc., he and his wife traveled throughout Europe and the US for three years. They fell in love with many cities: Budapest, Vienna, Paris, Savannah, Charleston… But the more they learned about each city the more they came to realize it was the Budapest of the 1930’s, or Vienna of 1914, or Paris of the 1890’s that they had fallen in love with. Only New Orleans, the New Orleans of then and now maintained it’s magnetic hold. When they left New Orleans the first time, New Orleans never left them. They came back to stay. David attended the Friends of Cabildo/Louisiana State Museum school for tour guides and the historical research course at Delgado Community College. New Orleans’ architecture, literature and cuisine are David’s passions. Every street name has a story. Every building tells a saga reflecting the history and culture of this most unique city.
