Michael Bobker – with the steady leadership of the CUNY Institute for Urban Systems (CIUS), Director Buz Paaswell (CIUS is BPL’s parent organization) – began BPL as a one-man operation in 2006. It’s something of an understatement to say we’ve grown quite a bit since then. CUNY BPL now has a Managing Director — Honey Berk, 12 full-time senior and junior staff members, and our extraordinary interns — typically from 10-25 at a time.
