Sarah Belle Lin is a contributing reporter for the Bronx Times. She hails from the Bay Area, where she was born and raised, up until the only thing that made sense to her was moving to New York City — so she did in spring of 2021. She’s since spent a summer reporting for Patch NYC, picked up a love of biking the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and is ready to report on the northwest Bronx again (and excitedly, central and South Bronx) for the Bronx Times. Got a recommendation for the best almond croissants, mochas and Italian food? Story ideas/tips? (Just as delectable). I’ll keep an eye out.
