Four years ago, Qfwfq and I had the nutty idea to start Brooklyn Heights Blog. I’d lived here for about a year and he’d soon follow. We’d worked on other sites together at CBS and we thought it would be fun to create a neighborhood blog here since no one else had launched one. My first post:
Welcome to brooklynheightsblog, the first “serious” blog from the geniuses at The Fink File. While Brooklyn has its share of great bloggers, we found precious little about our ‘hood in one centralized/not spam website. So instead of whining (or not getting off the couch) we decided to launch this blog.
We’re actively looking for “real” folks from our nabe to blog here about a variety of different topics. If you’re “that guy/gal” drop us an email (homer AT thefinkfile.com).
Onward and upward,
Publisher, Altruist, BROOKLYNITE
We’ve met some great neighbors along the way and we look forward meeting more of you in the coming year.
This year, we’ve been quite fortunate to have been joined by new contributors Heather Quinlan, Julie Kanfer, Caitlin Heikkila as well as Cobble Hill Blog’s Jonah Eller-Isaacs and Jason Shaltz.
BHB wouldn’t have made it through 2007 without our “OGs” Marc Hermann and Claude Scales. Mega-kudos as well to contirbutors Karl Junkersfeld and TK Small as well as Diana Rosenthal who helped us kickstart CHB last year. And we’ll always be grateful to Sarah Portlock, Chief Correspondent Emeritus, for her contribution.
And also a big thanks to our many supporters in the community. But the biggest round of applause goes to you, our readers and regular commenters.
Onward and Upward… for another year!
John “Homer Fink” Loscalzo
