Hadley Nagel, a recent Nightingale-Bamford graduate, is very accomplished. At 18 years old, she has founded an organization, “Americans for Madison,” to lobby the government to erect a monument of James Madison, the fourth president of the United States, and launched a travel website,, for teenagers. Last spring she interned at an advertising agency, and she’ll be attending Johns Hopkins University in the fall. But there is one thing she will never do: go to Brooklyn, she told the Observer. “I haven’t run out of things yet to do in Manhattan.” [NYO]
