Amy Langfield is a News Editor at DNAinfo and previously worked at CNBC.com, NBCNews.com, Reuters, the Los Angeles Daily News and other newsrooms.
She has covered business, technology, urban planning, transportation, travel, crime and lots of weird animal stories. She was a member of the team that won a Peabody Award at NBCNews.com for its In Plain Sight series on poverty in America.
She founded and ran the now-defunct NewYorkology website, which won three Lowell Thomas awards from the Society of American Travel Writers and was a Shorty award finalist for its Twitter feed.
Her post-college journalism career started in Czechoslovakia, at the country’s first independent English-language newspaper. The paper was founded by friends from her college newspaper and she started the business section when she arrived.
Fun Fact: Amy was stuck underground in the last car of a Q train during the 2003 blackout. Although there was talk of cannibalism, no one was injured or eaten.
