David Gonzalez, a native of the Bronx who, until recently, was Caribbean and Central American bureau chief for The New York Times, has returned to New York and will begin writing a column for the paper.
Gonzalez’s column, called “Citywide,” begins Jan. 27 and will run every Tuesday on the front page of the Metro section, the paper announced Monday. Gonzalez will write other news and features for Metro as well.
From 1995 to 1999, Gonalez wrote the “About New York” column. The Bronx, where he grew up, was a recurring theme. As the paper’s Caribbean and Central America bureau chief, he was based out of Miami and reported on issues such as Haiti’s political and social problems and Cuba’s adjustment to the post-Soviet world, according to the Times.
