Eric Moskowitz

Eric Moskowitz is a reporter who mainly tells stories about people drawn from everyday life around Boston, looking out for poignant, charming, affecting, illuminating, or otherwise fascinating tales. He has worked at the Globe since 2007 and feels lucky to be paid to do what he would do anyway: wander the city, start conversations with strangers, and get lost in Boston’s layers of history, the obscured ones as much as the highlighted ones.

Moskowitz has received multiple honors for reporting and writing, including the 2017 National Headliner Award for feature writing. In 2014, he was part of the newsroom team that won a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the 2013 marathon bombings. Before joining the Globe, he worked for the Concord (N.H.) Monitor and The (New Bedford) Standard-Times, after studying history at the University of Pennsylvania. A native of the Boston area, he sold souvenirs at Fenway Park in high school, shares Celtics season tickets today, and collects old postcards, mostly of local scenes that look different now but still retain a trace of that past.
