Things have been a bit quiet here on the site. I know it. The whole team knows it, actually. It’d be easy to blame it on the babies (four in the the past 15 months) that have joined various staff members’ families. Or maybe on my recent move to a new NYCR world headquarters. Moving stinks. Moving with two young children is exponentially worse.
But reasons or excuses don’t matter at this point. Today is the first day of the rest of this website’s life. The entire team is committed ready to dive back into the site with gusto. We’re bringing back What We Drank tomorrow and will get back to regular programming this week as well.
There was a brief moment a few weeks ago when it almost went the other way. NYCR almost shuttered its virtual windows — but there are too many stories to be told. Too many people, places and passions to be uncovered and explored. The New York “local” movement deserves the attention we can give it.
Our job isn’t done. We hope that you’ll forgive us for our semi-hiatus and be more vocal than ever about what you think about what we write and what you want from us.
