Student - Professional Publication
I was one of three finalists for this award honoring students who completed award-worthy work while working for professional publications. My article, "Manhattan condos at half price reshape New York's Harlem," described the meteoric rise in real estate prices in the historic New York neighborhood. Still, prices there were (and are) a bargain compared to the toniest areas of the city. Judges said of the article, "This is an excellent example of robust reporting, anecdotes and use of statistics. I came away from reading this piece with a real understanding of what is driving gentrification in Harlem. The story was well written."
