The New York Times Made A Blog
We'd be remiss if we didn't encourage readers to check-out the New York Times' new blog focusing on the Clinton Hill/Fort Greene area of Brooklyn, The Local. We met head blogger Andy a while ago, and he's a phenomenally talented journalist, a pretty nice guy, and he changes a mean water cooler bottle.
Here at Team Tish, we're so happy to see so many great blogs popping up that focus on the area, and Brooklyn in general. Since we first started, blogs like McBrooklyn and The General Greene have definitely caught our attention. We're beyond happy that the New York Times chose Fort Greene/Clinton Hill (and the 35th District) as the focus for their ongoing move towards citizen-driven journalism, recognizing the area as a center of political, social, and artistic birth.
We'll be reading.
