N.Y. Wheel

Tracey Porpora was the lead reporter covering the rise and fall of the New York Wheel, proposed for the St. George waterfront on Staten Island. She has penned more than 150 stories on the topic.

This led to an award for distinguished beat reporting by the New York News Publishers Association.

Tracey exclusively reported the project was dead in October before any other media wrote about the Wheel’s downfall.
