DescriptionManhattan surely has more media outlets per square foot than just about anywhere else in the world but DNAinfo has proved that there’s still plenty of room on the island for local news. Conceived by Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts the site is a compendium of hyperlocal news for Manhattan’s many communities. The site’s ten separate verticals provide coverage of neighborhoods from Washington Heights to Hell’s Kitchen. [Profile updated December 18 2012]
