huffpo.pngOur sister blog WebNewser has news about The Huffington Post. One week after announcing the appointment of a new CEO, the online pub has launched a new section: Huffington Post New York.

The new section, which launched yesterday with blog posts from with blog posts from Nora Ephron, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Frank Serpico and former Mayor Ed Koch, will be led by former New York Daily News reporter Dan Collins. It will also feature partnerships with more than one-dozen local outlets and employ HuffPo’s Eyes & Ears citizen-reporting unit.

Founder Arianna Huffington explained the new page in an introductory blog post:

“New York has always held a special place in the heart of HuffPosters. It definitely has for me. It was the first place in America I lived in after moving here from London in 1980. And the majority of the HuffPost team is based in New York, working out of our offices in SoHo. But whether you live in New York or not — New York is part of our national collective consciousness…HuffPost New York features our curated selection of the best New York news coverage, plus a collection of bloggers — some familiar faces you know, some we’re excited to introduce you to — who are eager to share their takes on everything from local politics to the city’s fashion, food, entertainment, real estate, sports teams, and business trends.”
