DescriptionNearly four years ago the late renowned Brooklyn blogger Robert Guskind pointed out in his coverage of the 2008 Brooklyn Blogfest the pressing need for hyperlocal news sites in the borough’s least-covered communities. “While some neighborhoods like Carroll Gardens and Park Slope are written about at length others such as Sunset Park and Sheepshead Bay - where there are compelling community issues - are seriously ‘under blogged’” he wrote.
