Lynn Freehill-Maye writes stories grounded in place. She uncovers everything from the people and policies to the businesses and cuisine that make each place distinct and workable in the 21st century.
Her work often touches on architecture and design; food and drink; travel; and sustainability. It has been published, in print or online, by the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic’s CityLab, Travel + Leisure, AFAR, Texas Monthly, Modern Farmer, and beyond. A forthcoming essay on grain elevators will be included in an anthology on Midwestern architecture (Belt Publishing, September 2019).
She grew up in the Midwest and has lived in the Southwest, Europe, Africa, and South and Central America. She now calls New York’s Hudson Valley home.
