Brian James Pfail

I’m a freelance writer and journalist in the Greater New York area. I report on crime at the New York Sun and local news at the Smithtown Chronicle. I am also a contributor at the Federalist, Townhall and RealClearPolicy. Previously, I wrote for the collegiate award-winning Fordham Observer and Fordham Ram.

My expertise is criminality, brain injury, cannabis, local politics, post-modernity, academia and tech.

My work is dedicated to my loving family: Mom, Dad, Thomas, Erin, and my late brother and closest confidant, Stephen. I would be nowhere without their support and love.

Below is some of my work.
