In a city as large as New York, what the local news covers isn’t always as local as you want or need it to be. Having spent a few years reading hyperlocal neighborhood sites like West Side Rag and Tribeca Citizen, wishing something like them existed for where are live, I eventually decided to do it myself. I’ve written on and off for sites like Eater NY, Serious Eats, and Gizmodo, worked in and at various restaurants and tech startups downtown, have lived below 14th St for many years and hope to never have to move again. Thank you for reading, neighbor!
