This book was 3 years in the making, consisting of an accumulation of 77 small to large articles from the people who had an important part in creating this new town of 100,000 people. It is a masterful puzzle put into book form of an “impossible dream” in the 1960s.
READ the Whole Story
Columbia is a planned community that prizes economic and social diversity. Currently, its population is 102,221; their median home price is $310,000; and its unemployment rate is 3.5%.
You know the phrase “50 is the new 30?” Apparently, that applies to cities and towns, too. One of the most successful planned communities in the country, Columbia is a magnet in the Baltimore–Washington corridor, attracting families in search of good schools and businesses hungry for educated employees.
A planned community—where covenants limit everything from new construction to the color you can paint your home—isn’t for everyone (though there are three of them in Money magazine’s top 10).
But Columbia is clearly thriving. It ranks in the top 5% of the 823 places on this year’s list for job growth and economic opportunity. Their schools are among the state’s best.
At almost 50, Columbia is welcoming its third generation, and the sense of community is flourishing in the most human of ways. The population is 55% white, 25% African-American, 12% Asian, and 8% Latino. Bob Tannenbaum is an architect, urban planner, and the editor of the Columbia book. He is filled with an assortment of memories, since he was one of the first professionals hired to make Columbia a dream-come-true.
As an architect/land planner, he walked the land, hills and valleys, to make sure in their planning that the environment was as important as the bricks and mortar. And it shows today in its winding forest of trees in every neighborhood and on its main streets. He was one of the first residents and he still lives there! The reason this book is so important to me, is that my husband, Bill Finley, was the first professional hired by James Rouse, to build a team that could make this enormous task, a reality. Bill had always said that his work in Columbia was the highlight of his professional career. I just visited the 50th anniversary of this new town and I know Bill would’ve been very proud of the “impossible dream” come true.
If you are an architect, land planner, professor of an urban planning school or interested in new city planning, I suggest you purchase this 395-page book which is filled with sketches, photos and lots of illustrations. It is one-of-a-kind.

Editors Note: We are all aware of the healthy benefits of eating salmon. My mother used to buy canned salmon and make salmon cakes each week. I still make them, but now the delicacy takes the prize.

Place salmon on a plate; freeze until well chilled, about 20 minutes. Thinly slice salmon lengthwise into 1/8”-wide sheets. Cut each sheet into 1/8”-long strips. Cut strips crosswise into 1/8” cubes. Place salmon in a medium bowl. Add cucumber and the next 9 ingredients and toss to combine. Season tartare to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer tartare to a bowl and serve with chips.

Palm Beach has attracted the super wealthy since Henry Flagler built his luxury hotel at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in 1894 (today the landmark hotel The Breakers) and his Florida East Coast Railroad delivered passengers directly to the hotels.
READ the Whole Story
Though still without a name of its own, this 35,993-squarefoot manse was built in 2015 in northern Palm Beach with approximately 242 feet of direct ocean frontage. Its statement of wealth begins at its impressive entrance and continues through to its ocean views. The interior includes the grand salon, eight bedrooms, seven full baths and ten partial baths positioned for the convenience of owner and guests. Also included are a bowling alley, pub room, game room, home theater, library and dual balconies for ocean viewing. Grounds include an eight-car garage and oceanfront terrace with pool and spa.
I had advertised in a multitude of media, but the best response so far has been working with Anita Finley on her radio show and Boomer Times magazine for the increase of patients.

Thank you – both of you – for your outstanding promotion of my book and for keeping me informed every inch of the way. I am enjoying all of the attention.
Hi Dan, Thank you and Anita for giving me an outlet to let people know about my books. It has been a terrific experience and one that I’ll cherish for a long time.
