About Emily Nonko

New Yorker by way of Colorado, and happiest when telling stories of how we live in cities. My urbanism focus took root in NYC, working as blogger, reporter and community board-attender for Brownstoner, followed by editing and writing for now-defunct Brownstoner Queens. I began my freelance reporting career in 2015.

Today I am a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal, Next City and Curbed New York. My byline has also appeared in the Atlantic, New York Magazine, Entrepreneur, the Guardian, Village Voice, New York Post and CityLab, among other publications.

I never turn down a good story, though my regular coverage remains in real estate, architecture, design and urbanism.
