Tim Thomas

Spring Comes to the Flatbush Trees
Tim Thomas is a blogger, activist and active Community Board member in the Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn. In a period of rapid change, some would say upheaval, he sees his role as a politically conscious middle-timer. That is, someone both old and new enough to the neighborhood to recognize the need for sensitivity and cultural discourse. He's a graduate of Brown University, but believes that formal education couldn't begin to prepare one for the delicate intricacies of urban living. He likes to think he's working on his doctorate in Real Life.
