I’m Allison Cohen, a 24 year old native Staten Islander. I started working as a news assistant in 2011 (after I graduated from Vassar). My job is to shoot news stories, write, and edit them. Sometimes I fill in as a writer, researcher, or producer. Ultimately I’d love to become a producer of some sort (and no, I have no desire to be on camera, thanks for asking though). I mostly cover news on Staten Island, but sometimes I stray out to other boroughs/NJ.
