DescriptionWhat started as a simple online directory of businesses restaurants and other establishments serving Boston has grown into a full-blown hub of Beantown information. After a layoff prompted him to take his side project full-time Adam Gaffin set about building Universal Hub into a hyperlocal news hub with an original Boston twist. If you want the day’s biggest stories stick with The Boston Globe. But if you’re a Bostonian looking for a ground-level view of your city the Hub serves a distinct purpose.
