Brownstoner's just made the news public about the new NY Times initiative to start a series of hyper-local blogs, one of which will be set in our very own Fort Greene / Clinton Hill. Obviously, they have the advantage of full-time manpower to cover the scoops 24-7. However, they're missing one key advantage that us local bloggers have: the man they've pegged to run the blog lives in Park Slope.
Will they be able to pick up the nuances of our 'hood's special character? Maybe, maybe not. It'll be interesting to see how it goes and what they'll be covering.
As the 'Stoner said, Game On.
