We all know “notable” New Yorkers never get tired of hearing about themselves, much as the blogosphere never tires of writing about them. To that end, Gawker is reporting that Cityfile, the brainchild of Remy Stern, has gone live. According to the site, Cityfile aims to be a “guide to the most notable and influential New Yorkers, more than 2,100 people divided into 27 industry categories. The editorial content on the site, which was assembled by a talented team of writers, editors and researchers, is updated regularly.” It’s also home to a blog, Dailyfile, . In case you’re wondering, as far as Cityfile is concerned, there are currently 2109 “notables” residing in New York; at the moment Harvey Weinstein is the “most viewed” media entry.
Contributions are welcome in the form of comments and readers will also be allowed to rate people and upload photos. It appears that not only will entries sometimes include real estate purchase prices and “messy” histories, they may also contain actual current addresses(!). So basically, it’s sort of like Gawker Stalker meets the bathroom wall for the Waverly Inn set.
