New York YIMBY is the go-to resource for cutting-edge information on new development in New York City. Covering construction and public works projects from ideation through completion, YIMBY keeps the pulse of the city’s real estate, architecture and construction trades. New York YIMBY was founded in 2011 and is now in its third year. YIMBY is the fastest growing real estate trade publication in New York, and has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Capital New York.
Nikolai Fedak, Founder & Editor In Chief
Nikolai moved to New York City in 2008 to study political science at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus. Upon graduating early in 2011, Nikolai began working for the Clinton Global Initiative, during which time he founded New York YIMBY. After learning the publishing business at Surface Magazine in 2012, he began working on YIMBY full-time in 2013. When he isn’t writing or snapping photos of the city skyline, he can be found speaking about new development on industry panels.
Stephen Smith, Editor
Originally from Philadelphia, Stephen moved to New York City in 2010, and started his writing career at the New York Observer. After the Observer, Stephen honed his knack for analyzing urban policy at Next City, before coming to New York YIMBY in 2014. Stephen brings an extensive knowledge of zoning and planning issues to YIMBY, and when he isn’t discussing New York’s PTAC plague, he can be found scoping out outer borough neighborhoods that remain beyond the reach of gentrification.
Reid Wilson, Editorial Assistant
Born and bred in Connecticut, Reid started writing for YIMBY in the spring of 2014. Besides his keen ability to decipher the intricacies of New York’s Department of Buildings database, Reid combs the internet for the latest in breaking real estate news — and when he isn’t writing for YIMBY, he is studying for his undergraduate degree at Hofstra.
Jose Hernandez, Staff Illustrator
Jose is an architectural illustrator who creates YIMBY’s illustrations of the New York skyline of the future. He can be credited with the first renderings of Nordstrom Tower, which were the basis for one of YIMBY’s blockbuster stories of 2014, and his portfolio can be viewed at the following link.
