In 2014, I was assigned to cover Boerum Hill for The Brooklyn Ink, a news source that delivers breaking news, multimedia and features on Brooklyn through @ColumbiaJourn reporters.

My work includes: 

  • Cobble Hill's charter battle: Two years later, an 2,350-word investigation of the effects of Success Academy Cobble Hill on surrounding public schools, in light of parent protests. 
  • A Changing Brooklyn: Boerum Hill, an  800-word exposé that examines escalating rent rates on Court Street in Boerum Hill, as big box stores threaten this Brooklyn urban Mayberry to stake claim on the envied shopping space. 

  • A Summer Meal: Boerum Hill, an 850-word article that offers a behind-the-scenes look at a typical evening in Dawn Casale's backyard garden in Boerum Hill.

  • An American Weekend: Boerum Hill, a 1,000-word look at an American Fourth of July weekend in this small Brooklyn borough.
