Times to Start Neighborhood Blogs


The Paper of Record is looking to compete with New York’s army of neighborhood blogs. Starting Monday, they’ll launch sites covering Fort Greene and Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, and Millburn, Maplewood, and South Orange in New Jersey. These will be followed by other blogs, all of which will focus on “cultural events, bar and restaurant openings, real estate, arts, fashion, health, social concerns,” real-estate listings, and even wedding announcements. Way to fight back, old media! [Brownstoner]
