Kate Hinds is WNYC's planning editor. She's been with the station long enough to have experienced life in the Municipal Building. She’s encouraged people to attend MTA board meetings, reported on the dangers of left turns, written about the persistence of hot subway cars, lamented the C train, and explored the link between poverty and traffic crashes. She lives with her family in Manhattan, and Oliver is her local bodega cat.
