Here’s an excellent article and interview with Bronx Hero David Gonzalez, a Bronx born and bred New York Times reporter.
Reporter Samy Nevir Olivares of CentroVoices says of Gonzalez:
“After working at Newsweek, Gonzalez moved to The New York Times in 1990, becoming one of the first Latino staff at the paper. There he led the Bronx and Central America/Caribbean bureaus. Along with reporting, he co-edits Lens Blog and does the biweekly Side Street photo-essay feature for the City Room blog.
For his social conscience and in-depth work, Gonzalez won Columbia University’s Mike Berger Award in May 1992, and the 2008 Distinguished Writing Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors for “House Afire,” a feature for The Times. He was inducted into the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Hall of Fame in 2013.”
