Loitering in The Warriors

Seven things to do in Coney when you're a thug

Robbin' Hood

The Warriors have kind of a weird relationship with the homeless guys who stagger around Coney at night.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
