One evening a few years ago, I answered a phone call from a U.S.E. member asking for a ride. I was honored to take Reston’s founder, Robert E. Simon, Jr. to a program at the Reston Community Center about the renovation of Lincoln Center in New York City. We had a lovely chat about his days in real estate there. It was the sale of Carnegie Hall which allowed him to purchase the land on which Reston was developed. Even at age 98, Bob Simon was interested in what was happening in his old home town.
