Eariler today, The New York Times published a story about the city’s decision to fine several Bronx and Manhattan stores for keeping their doors open during hot weather, while trying to attract customers seeking refuge from the scroching heat.

The author of the piece is Andrew Boryga, a 19-year-old Bedford Park resident and Mount St. Michael Academy graduate. Andrew is interning at The New York Times this Summer, as he did last summer, when he wrote for The Local, a Times blog which covers parts of Brooklyn. Andrew ‘s article is his first print clip, and a great achievement.

Andrew, a 2009 recipient of The New York Times Company Foundation College Scholarship, has just finished up his first year at Cornell where he is studying for a Bachelor’s degree in English.

We wish Andrew every success in his career and would be happy to publish his work on our pages. His article could be read here.
