Hi there! I’m a freelance culture writer and editor based in Brooklyn. My work has appeared in The New York Times, Vox, GQ, NYMag, Atlas Obscura, and more. Previously, I was the senior editor at The National, Amtrak’s travel and culture magazine, and before that, worked on the United Airlines magazines Hemispheres and Rhapsody.

I also write a newsletter about New York called Fun City.  You can reach me at lvespoli@gmail.com or on Twitter @L_Vespoli.
