“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.”
