Rachel Holliday Smith

Reporter/Producer @rachelholliday rsmith@dnainfo.com

Rachel Holliday Smith is a reporter/producer for DNAinfo New York covering Crown Heights and Prospect Heights.

Before joining our team, Rachel worked at NY1 News as a videographer, writer and breaking news hound. She also produced the "New Yorker of the Week" segment, which regularly restored her faith in humanity.

Rachel is a native upstate New Yorker, but lived near Boston before coming to the city. There, she read the Phoenix while it was still in print and listened to the Dresden Dolls while they were still making music.

She attended the school of the Washington Square News, where she served as editor in chief in 2009. At the same time, she somehow got a degree from New York University. She is a proud Gallatin alum.

Rachel lives in Fort Greene close enough to the Barclays Center that she once heard the screaming of Justin Bieber fans.

Fun fact: Rachel is from so far upstate that she had glass bottles of milk delivered to her childhood home by a milkman every day.
