From the press release:
“In areas such as politics, education, health care, land use or other critical areas, the suburbs are at the center of change in American life, and worthy of serious academic study and research. And no other institution is better positioned to study the suburbs, on Long Island and elsewhere, than Hofstra, which sits at the heart of the nation’s first suburb, Levittown, Levy said.
Levy joined Newsday in 1977 as a local reporter and has served as assistant Long Island editor, Nassau County bureau chief and as an Albany and Washington correspondent. He joined Newsday’s Editorial Board in 1987, and became a columnist in 1992. In 2005, he was named Newsday’s only senior editorial writer.
Levy also serves as the co-host of Face Off, a public affairs talk show produced by Long Island’s PBS affiliate.
