Ben Fried

Ben Fried is the Editor-in-Chief of Streetsblog. He joined Streetsblog as a New York City reporter in 2008, just as the push to enact congestion pricing was peaking. Since then he has covered slightly more successful transit funding campaigns, the transportation angle on local elections, and the day-by-day transformation of New York City streets. Today he oversees Streetsblog's family of sites covering New York, San Francisco, Chicago, federal transportation policy, and stories from around the country of significance to the national movement for safer streets and sustainable transportation.

Ben graduated from Oberlin College with a concentration in architecture, and he holds a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia University.

He lives with his wife in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, and he loves the Mets.
