New York Times To Start Nabe Blogs
Per an anonymous tipster, the venerable New York Times is now getting into the neighborhood blogging game:
Speaking of citizen journalism, The New York Times is introducing a hyper-local neighborhood blogging initiative today accepting postings on “cultural events, bar and restaurant openings, real estate, arts, fashion, health, social concerns and anything else that goes on in the ‘SoHo of Brooklyn,'” per Brooklyn blog Brownstoner. Beginning with pilot sites covering Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn and Millburn, Maplewood and South Orange, N.J., each site will accept text stories, photos and short films and will be overseen by a writer/editor from the Times.
