The Day | Welcoming A New Blog

East Village, New York City 331Vivienne Gucwa

Good morning, East Village.

We’d like to welcome the new blog on the block, EV Transitions, which made its formal neighborhood debut via EV Grieve. (Grieve playfully noted that a intellectual property rights fight might be on the horizon because the author appropriated “EV” for the blog’s name.)

Transitions is a wonderful look at neighborhood history using archival maps and photographs juxtaposed with contemporary images. It is well worth a visit and we at The Local look forward to stopping by and sending viewers to the blog often. We’ve added Transitions to our blogroll and if you would like your blog added, too, please e-mail us.

In other neighborhood news, Bowery Boogie reports that “On The Bowery” – Lionel Rogosin’s iconic 1957 documentary which had a local showing in September – is returning Nov. 19 for a one-week run at the Film Forum.

And we’d also like to remind you that we’ve begun our search for The Local’s next community editor, who would start work just after the new year. We’re accepting applications until Dec. 3, and you can find additional details here.
