Bronx Teen Writes for The New York Times

In this morning's news roundup, we linked to a New York Times story about the city's decision to fine several stores in the Bronx and Manhattan for keeping their doors open during hot weather.

We wanted to point out that the author of the piece is Andrew Boryga, a 19-year-old Bedford Park resident and Mount St. Michael Academy graduate. Andrew is interning at The Times this summer, as he did last summer, when he wrote for The Local, a Times blog which covers parts of Brooklyn. Today's article is his first print clip, and needless to say it's a terrific achievement. There can't be many teenagers with a byline from the Gray Lady.
