About The Barkan Report: New York City is a political jungle and I’m just one of the people slashing through foliage, trying to find my way and help you out too. For long-form analysis and news of the city’s politics scene, stop by here Mondays through Fridays and the occasional weekend. I’m not sure you’ll find a degenerate gambler’s guide to the City Council speaker’s race anywhere else.
About me: I’m a freelance reporter covering NYC politics and various urban issues. My work appears frequently in the New York Observer and I have also written for Gotham Gazette, City Limits, Iowa Review, L Magazine and other publications.
