About the author (2010)

Ginger Adams Otis moved to New York City in 1995, at the height of the city's housing book. With $50 in herp pocket and images of a Soho loft dancing in her head, she navigated the mean streets on a shoestring budget (sleeping on friends' counches), gradually building a career as a journalist and travel writer. Ginger has written for publications such as the Village Voice, the Nation, Newsday, Ms Magazine, JANE, the Ex-Berliner and In These Times, and also does radio work for Pacifica, the Associated Press, National Public Radio and the BBC. Although her assignments take her far and wide, Ginger is always happy to return home to her beloved NYC and (at last!) her Nolita apartment.
