This story--an edited version of my Columbia Journalism School masters thesis--revealed that Bill Thompson, a likely candidate for New York City mayor, had cut two deals as head of a public authority that put some $81 million in the hands of wealthy developers at the expense of taxpayers. Based on roughly six months of work, starting with a push from my advisor, the piece draws on extensive reporting, using both on- and off-the-record conversations, which led to several records requests that ultimately gave the first accounting of the cost of the actions of the Battery Park City Authority during Mr. Thompson's term as chair. The piece was published in the New York World, a non-profit accountability journalism organization run by Columbia.
