Local blogger stops talking about Mars Bar closing long enough to thank everyone



I was honored to be named Best Neighborhood Blog in the First Annual Village Voice Web Awards Tuesday night. I was nominated alongside four other excellent sites: BoweryBoogie, New York Shitty, Ditmas Park Blog and Fucked in Park Slope.

So, many thanks to the Voice and to the folks at FourSquare, who selected the winner in the Neighborhood category. And I said this to Patrick Hedlund at DNAinfo, who wrote a piece on me and BoweryBoogie this week:

"The site wouldn't work without the participation of so many people sharing comments, opinions, tips and photos. Their passion for the East Village inspires me every day. For that, I'm very thankful."


Thank you.

And here's a complete list of all the recipients.
