Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Justin Davidson is New York Magazine’s just-hired classical music and architecture critic, arriving on board in September to write reviews and features on both subjects. He is the magazine’s first staff architecture critic since 2004. Davidson comes from Newsday, where he has worked as classical music critic since 1996 and architecture critic since 2002, the year he won a Pulitzer for criticism. He has written about both music and architecture for The New Yorker, and has also contributed to the Los Angeles Times, Slate, Salon, and Opera News. Davidson succeeds the recently axed Peter G. Davis.
