Specializing in Travel, Automotive, Environmental, Consumer Rights, Smart Spending

Journalist – Photographer – Author – Blogger

Evelyn Kanter 2015A lifetime of experience as a magazine and newspaper writer and photographer, radio and TV news producer and reporter, and guidebook author and editor, focusing on travel, automotive, lifestyle, environmental issues, consumer rights, frauds and scams, and my hometown, New York City.

My articles have taken me to some 100 countries on everybody’s bucket lists, lucky to do the things I love — skiing, scuba diving, hiking, exploring historic sites — and write about them. Lucky also to test-drive sportscars that others of us dream about. And lucky also to be a credible source for expert travel and automotive commentary on TV news shows.
