Cindy Rodriguez is the Urban Policy reporter for New York Public Radio.
Her stories include in-depth looks at homelessness, neighborhood violence and more recently the impact of Sandy on poor communities in flood damaged areas. She’s won the Associated Press’ Best Enterprise Reporting award twice – most recently in 2010 for a story that exposed unscrupulous landlords taking advantage of people living on the margins and desperate for a place to live.
Rodriguez has also covered New York’s immigrant population. A story about an immigrant restaurant worker who narrowly escaped death on September 11th won her an NFCB Golden Reel Award. Originally from San Antonio, she moved to New York City in 1995 and lives in Queens.
