NYT City Hall Bureau Chief Leaving for Stanford

New York Times City Hall bureau chief Diane Cardwell is leaving for a year to study at Stanford, Sally Goldenberg reports.

Cardwell will be hard to replace, having written some of the most incisively critical stories about the Bloomberg administration, including a September 2007 story describing how this mayor “has been presiding over one of the greatest expansions of city government since the John V. Lindsay administration.” She was also one of the earliest of the Bloomberg chroniclers to stick a needle into the mayor’s presidential bubble.
