Haughney tweeted about the beat change on Monday. Her replacement on the transit beat is Matt Flegenheimer.
Haughney joined the Times as a staff reporter for real estate news in October 2006. In this role she covered the residential real estate beat, from women buyers in Brooklyn to penthouse purchasers in Manhattan.
Before joining the Times, Haughney was a staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal from July 2005 to October 2006, where she reported on commercial real estate finance.
From September 2003 to July 2005 she was a staff reporter for Crain’s New York Business. At the Washington Post, Haughney was a staff writer and editorial aide from May 2000 to August 2003. During that time she spent nearly two years covering the Sept. 11 attacks and their fallout.
