community development

I’ve covered community affairs for several New York City newspapers on and off since 1994. amNewYork, for which I covered historic preservation, received the the Historic Districts Council’s “Friend in Media” award for its coverage of “Endangered New York,” an annual roundup of threatened heritage sites that I authored for four years.

I now cover community development with a preservation twist for The Wall Street Journal’s “Greater New York” section.
