Rule One (of one)

Don’t be a dick. If you attack people in the comment sections of stories, we’re gonna delete it. Abuse isn’t tolerated and if we catch you causing sh!t, you’ll probably lose your commenting privileges. The definition of abuse is based on our mood, so what we’re saying is we will Big Brother whatever we want. If you have a problem with that, start your own site. This site isn’t paid for with your tax dollars.

Links

This site contains links to other sites (otherwise it wouldn’t really be a website). We are not responsible for content on these other sites. These sites may have different privacy policies that you should definitely read if you are so inclined.

Corrections

Bowery Boogie handles errors in the following way: If the error is a simple typo that doesn’t change facts or understanding of the story, we consider it a minor change and simply correct it without further mention. If the error is substantive or one of fact, we change it. On a breaking news story, we may overwrite the text of an article several times as the story develops. Due to the urgency of the news and time constraints, we will not mention the exact changes in each version – we expect understanding that it is a story that is still developing.

Photo Submissions

By submitting photos to Bowery Boogie via email or the website tipline, you hereby grant Bowery Boogie a non-exclusive, irrevocable license in perpetuity to publish the photo on the website and the related social media outlets.
