Stephen Nessen reports for the WNYC Newsroom and can often be heard live on Morning Edition.
Since 2008, his work at WNYC has varied from chronicling the transformation of the World Trade Center through photos and radio stories, to profiling the city’s most unique characters, like a tabloid crime photographer, Mohawk Ironworker and Cuban Salsa legend Arsenio Rodriguez. He spent a year reporting on the oldest family in one of the city’s oldest public housing projects for a four part series. During Hurricane Sandy, he reported extensively in Brooklyn and Queens and continues to report on recovery in the Rockaways. His stories are often featured on NPR, and his photos have been the subject of a Yahoo television show.
