Editorial Staff

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 full-time work 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.

Otie O’Daniel, Staff Illustrator

Otie is an architectural illustrator who create’s 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.
