A wide-reaching investigation by the Associated Press of the NYPD's surveillance of Muslim neighborhoods is among the winners of this year's Pulitzer Prizes.
A team of AP reporters took home the award on Monday for exposing the spying program.
The investigation resulted in a national debate about the limits of intelligence gathering.
Pulitzer winners with local connections include the playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes for her play about a returning Iraq war veteran, "Water By The Spoonful."
Hudes was a Pulitzer finalist in 2008 for writing the book for the Broadway show "In The Heights."
The late historian Manning Marable won the Pulitzer Prize in History for his biography of Malcolm X.
Marable was the director of the Institute for Research in African American Studies at Columbia University.
