ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
JEFFREY PFEIL has completed a number of successful real estate projects, including Powers Park Lofts in a renovated 19th century mill building in Lansingburgh; The Conservatory apartments in a completely restored historic department store building in downtown Troy, NY and new office buildings in Saratoga Springs (340 Broadway, The Masie Center, and two medical office buildings). These endeavors have inspired downtown redevelopment and rejuvenation in both Saratoga Springs and Troy.

For five years he hosted and produced more than 200 episodes of The KunstlerCast, a popular weekly podcast with noted social commentator James Howard Kunstler. In 2011, he authored a critically acclaimed book based on those conversations on urbanism. Today Duncan hosts and produces “A Small American City” podcast, about life in Troy, New York. The Wall Street Journal recently described him as a “Troy tub-thumper.”
