We are Paul and Rosemarie Birman.  You can contact us through the mail link below or directly at: paul@pbirman.com.  We like to travel and have documented some of our recent trips on this site.  The links are on the left. Enjoy!  We've posted material about our family history and genealogy .  Please use this link to navigate there.  We've also posted some family pictures.  More pictures, 2008

Having worked for more than four decades in the New York City area, we are now both retired.  We spend the summer months at the eastern end of Long Island at Cedar Beach on the North Fork.  It is a beautiful rural area now much given to vineyards, wineries and marinas.  In the 28 years we've lived there we have seen the area develop a substantial tourist business centered around the village of Greenport.

The links above will take your browser to a couple of delightful sites devoted to this area, highlighting the artists, shops, restaurants and inns which comprise this unique place just 100 miles from the bustle of Manhattan. 

Our winters are spent in Ft. Lauderdale FL where we've owned an apartment for 20 years.  We are on the barrier island, Ft. Lauderdale Beach, facing the famous Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.  The ocean beaches are two blocks east.  Ft. Lauderdale has been described as a miniature New York City, only cleaner.  It has many of the features of a big city (opera, concerts, theater, restaurants, cafes, shops, museums, galleries etc.) but in a more human-sized scale.

We're right about here
In this aerial view of Ft. Lauderdale Beach

This is the Intracoastal Waterway.  The Atlantic Ocean is on the far right.  The view is looking north from the Port Everglades area.

This panoramic view of our Long Island waterfront was taken by Naoma Dorety, when she visited in June 2004.  Her camera "stitched together" three separate digital images to produce the single picture.  On the right are the pilings for our dock.  In the center is the opening of our creek into Peconic Bay.  In the far distance is the South Fork of Long Island (The Hamptons).  On the left are our neighbor's docks.

Our North Fork boasts a rural aspect with many fruit and vegetable farms and a large number of vineyards and wineries.  Boating and fishing are staples of the local scene.

Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson (December 22, 1912 - July 11, 2007) was the First Lady of the United States from November 1963 to January 1969. We traveled together several times in the 80s on expeditions to Galapagos and Baja.
