This story ran in the online and print edition of the Boston Sunday Globe on Nov. 29, 2015. I created a video to go with it where bike commuters tell their horror stories. I’m also linking to it here from my personal blog because the Globe’s paywall sometimes limits non-subscribers from reading the article.
This story ran in the Boston Sunday Globe on May 18, 2014. A Globe editor asked me to turn my documentary, “Down the Lynde, A Neighborhood on the Verge of an Industrial Breakdown,” into a print article and this was the result. The story is about an old industrial neighborhood that is facing drastic change under an urban renewal plan and a proposal to build a billion dollar casino on a contaminated former chemical company site.

This story ran on the cover of the Boston Globe’s Arts section on June 22, 2013.
