Judith Matloff explains why, after 20 years as a foreign correspondent, she decided to put down roots in New York by buying a dilapidated brownstone on a rough block in West Harlem. She tells the story of building a home, starting a family, and learning to feel at home in an unusual place, in her book Home Girl.
