Staff & Board
Editor-In-Chief, StreetsblogNYC and StreetsblogUSA
Gersh Kuntzman joined Streetsblog as editor in chief in July 2018 after stints at both New York City tabloids (Post, 1993-2000 and 2004-2007; Daily News, 2012-2017) and a long tenure as editor of The Brooklyn Paper (2007-2012). He is a veteran journalist and longtime bike commuter from his home in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
He has been hit by a driver on Smith Street, doored on Flushing Avenue and wiped out on the really shiny, slippery paint on the Manhattan end of the Manhattan Bridge. He is a relentless voice for bicycle safety.
