Greg Hanlon quit his job at the Williamsburg Courier this week. That’s a shame, because he is a good reporter. He spent a lot of time learning about Williasmburg, worked hard at getting the story, and usually got it right. Its encouraging that the Greenpoint Gazette has picked up the slack as Courier/Life has beat a slow retreat from North Brooklyn, but we would benefit from more competition and more points of view.
Happily, Courier/Life has finally updated its web site – it’s still a navigational nightmare, and looks as though it was designed in 1997 (you’re still using tables, aren’t you?), but at least it includes actual articles. Written this week. That wasn’t always the case.
