This site is edited, written and photographed by David W. Dunlap (b 1952). I’m a reporter at The New York Times and write a weekly column called “Building Blocks.” (It should be said, however, that Building Provincetown is not connected in any way with The Times). I also wrote the text for the Historic Provincetown Walking Tour fold-out map, issued in 2010. I’m the author and photographer of From Abyssinian to Zion: A Guide to Manhattan’s Houses of Worship (2004) and On Broadway: A Journey Uptown Over Time (1990). I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with my husband, Scott Bane, but we try to spend as much time in Provincetown as we possibly can.

John Kane, a graphic designer and a faculty member at Northeastern University in Boston whose published works include Improper Bostonians (1998) and A Type Primer (2011), is designing the book.
