Three Years

The Gazette will go on hiatus this month. After three years, we've decided to take a break from blogging about Hudson Heights. A full-time job, a theater company, families and a host of other things keep getting in they way. But we've enjoyed this project immensely. The stats over three years are as follows: 424 posts; 24 blog followers; 30 Twitter followers; 52,000 page views. At their best, blogs focus attention on stories that matter but don't get covered elsewhere. With that in mind, the best moments for this blog include: (1) focusing on the loss of the Coliseum movie theater and sneaking into the original art-deco theater to get actual photos; (2) blogging about the closure of VIM Pharmacy and the plight of "neighborhood" retail in the heights; and (3) regularly publishing information about crime in Hudson Heights. Not all the stories were negative of course. We're particularly proud of "photos of the week" and its focus on quirky aspects of life in the heights, including local artist Marc Solomon's residency in Fort Tryon Park. We will leave the blog active as a "time capsule" of stories from the past three years. We particularly hope that folks from outside Hudson Heights will continue to stumble across it and see what a great, vibrant NYC neighborhood exists here. Our e-mail will remain active for a few months, hudsonheightsgazette@gmail.com. August 6, 2013
