About Elan


Elan is a New Yorker who studied history as an undergraduate and at the City University Graduate Center doctoral program. He became an Historic Preservationist at Columbia University (where he met Susan) and worked for the National Register of Historic Places, the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission, and New York Preservation Specialists. Elan wrote the National Register nomination for the South Beach Deco district and worked in the Greenwich Village, Brooklyn Heights, and Upper East Side NYC historic districts, and consulted on landmarks as varied as the Brooklyn Bridge and Victorian row-houses. He was also the curator of the Emlen Physick Estate museum in Cape May. "Before I met Suzie, I'd never been further from home than Atlantic City, now we spend our winter vacations overseas," says Elan. My interest in pastry (eating and making), history and architecture are the perfect background for hosting a bed and breakfast in Cape May."
