I'm Rolando Pujol, and this is The Retrologist, my history blog that's mainly focused on New York City but will travel wherever there's a bit of cool history hiding in plain sight.
I'm the digital content manager at WPIX-TV Channel 11, the CW station in New York. I oversee the website as well as social media and digital strategy.
I've also hosted a New York history show that helped inspire The Retrologist, "Hidden City," on WNBC-TV's New York Nonstop.
I was previously a multimedia editor at the New York Daily News, where I oversaw the America edition of the homepage in the evening. I've also been a managing editor at amNewYork and an assistant city editor at Newsday.
I'm also a gold-star certified NYC tour guide, and love to spend my time off simply walking around New York and finding new material for The Retrologist. Thanks for stopping by.

Twin Towers forever: Another fine addition to my collection of signs that still use their silhouette. Roll back on my feed or visit my Tumblr, theretrologist.com, for more examples. #wtc #nyc #logos #typography #sun #skyline #architecture
Selection of menu from Alexander Girard-designed restaurant, La Fonda del Sol. Note the photo number: PLaza7-8800. A Brooklyn design shop was asking $500 for it framed. Would be a nice addition to the CBS Sunday Morning set. #girard #mimo #midcentury #mod #pop #sun #cbssundaymorning
