This past month I started to write for a NYC website start-up called NearSay. It breaks NYC down by neighborhood and will eventually cover all of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Right now it is highlighting downtown Manhattan but other neighborhoods will be rolled out soon. It focuses on six categories: restaurants, nightlife, shopping, real estate, arts & culture, and family.
What makes this site unique is that the content is written by locals who really know the ins and outs of the city. And many of the writers are bloggers who have their fingers on the pulse. The site is quite user friendly and it is so easy to find just what you are looking for. For example, want to see the must-see gallery show opening in the Lower East Side? One click away.
This site is great for New Yorkers, for people coming to visit NYC, or simply for people from afar who want to know what is happening in the city. And once you find a writer you like on the site, you can follow them to get all their posts. And you can sign up for neighborhood newsletters by email too.
The images on this post are all from my contributions to NearSay and document some of the places I have recently visited in NYC. Most of what I post on NearSay will not be posted on The Altered Page. Head on over to their home page and check it out. Click this link to see the articles that I have already written and sign up to follow me if you like.
