New York magazine has hired Sukjong Hong will be the editor of Curbed.
The real estate news publication recently relaunched as part of New York.
“She’ll be crucial in bringing an existing team into the New York fold, and vice versa, as the site takes on the city’s ever-changing built environment, real-estate market, and design world,” said editor in chief David Haskell in an announcement.
Hong previously worked as managing editor of The Architect’s Newspaper, before that as the web editor there, and got her start in journalism as a reporter-researcher at The New Republic.
Earlier in her career, she conducted urban-planning research, including as a consultant for the Knight Foundation and the Van Alen Institute.
