...WITHOUT WHOM THIS ISSUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE FALL 2013 Eric Levin The work of Boston photographer Eric Levin often appears in our pages, and he has focused his lens on the likes of Morgan Freeman, Kanye West, and Rihanna. Levin is also a television host for WBZ-TV's Styleboston. He photographed the collectors and their cars in our feature story "Revved and Restored." What is your dream car? A Bugatti Veyron or a Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG in matte silver. What would you love to collect? Art. While each piece tells a story, together they tell a story about the collector. What is your favorite thing about the city in the fall? Going for a walk in the crisp air. Marni Katz What new restaurant openings are you excited about? Alden & Harlow in Cambridge. What's your favorite place to eat this time of year? I love going to restaurants that create visual masterpieces by matching foods to the color of the leaves— apples, cranberries, and Brussels sprouts. What fall food are you looking forward to? Local maple syrup! 36 Michael Blanding Michael Blanding is a senior fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University. His book The Map Thief is due out from Gotham Books next year. He took on the rebirth of Downtown Crossing in this issue's Haute Property. What makes it a great location for new development? It's near the Common, shopping, and the Financial and Theater districts. How has the city changed in the past 10 years? The city has taken off, especially with new residential development downtown. Ten years ago, downtown living was limited to Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the South End. PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIKE DISKIN (JOHNSON); ERIC LEVIN (LEVIN) Jenny Johnson Jenny Johnson is the executive producer and co-host of NECN's TV Diner, New England's Emmy Award– winning food and dining program, offering an inside guide to the best restaurants and nightlife. Johnson conceptualizes, writes, and field produces more than 40 hours of original programming a year. She is also an advocate for the Pan-Mass Challenge as a three-time rider to raise money for cancer research. She chats with Bloomingdale's general manager Laurie Thornton about her favorite places to eat for On The Town. Marni Elyse Katz is a Boston-based writer and editor. She began her career in the fashion closet of Rolling Stone magazine before moving into the digital realm, where she worked for indie startups as well as AOL and NBC. Today Katz lives in Back Bay and writes for several local publications and websites. She profiles Beverly Farms's newest home décor store, Well-Lived, in this issue. What is your next home décor project? A big, beautiful bathtub. What was your most recent home décor purchase? White frames for two small pieces that I purchased at the arts sale at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. BOSTONCOMMON-MAGAZINE.COM 036_BC_FOB_Contribs_Fall13.indd 36 8/2/13 2:20 PM
