// Peter Moskowitz //
I'm a journalist and writer based in Philadelphia. My work focuses on the intersection of the environment (both built and natural) and human lives. I also write essays about issues that are important to me (mainly social justice and LGBTQ rights).
My book How to Kill a City, a narrative journey through gentrification in four U.S. cities, is available for sale. My publisher is Nation Books/Perseus/Hachette (the book imprint of The Nation magazine).
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, The Guardian, New York Magazine (online), Al Jazeera America, Wired, Fusion, BuzzFeed, Vice and many other places. I co-founded Study Hall, a coworking space for non-fiction writers, in the fall of 2015 with a mission to build community within the freelance world.
