about us

Delanceyplace is very simply a brief daily email with an excerpt or quote we view as interesting or noteworthy, offered with commentary to provide context.  There is no theme, except that most excerpts will come from a non-fiction work, mainly works of history, and we hope will have a more universal relevance than simply the subject of the book from which they came.

We hope that you will enjoy these. If not, simply follow the directions in the email to remove your name from our list. If you enjoy these, and have a friend you think might enjoy these too, we'd love for you to share this with them by clicking on the "Share" link in the blue column to the left.  You can also use this link to post to Twitter, Facebook, save it in your favorites, or any of  number of other social networking sites.

We would also covet any comments or suggestions.   You may send us your comments and suggestions by clicking here and filling out the contact form or by sending an email to

All profits from Delanceyplace are donated to charity.

Thank you!
