NYU Local Blog Moves From New York Times to New York

NYU’s blog The Local: East Village, is moving on. The New York Times has ended its partnership with the hyperlocal site and so it has found a new home at New York magazine.

As part of the move, Nieman Journalism Lab reports that the blog will change its name to Bedford + Bowery and begin covering the LES and a few Brooklyn neighborhoods (Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick), as well as the East Village. Bedford + Bowery will also embrace larger scale angles, making it decidedly less local.

The small stories won’t completely disappear, however, because that’s one reason New York agreed to partner up. Ben Williams, editorial director of NYMag.com, said having a hyperlocal site on hand could help because those small items could turn into big ones. “A feeder is a good way to look at it, definitely,” he told Nieman.
