Catching up on bylines

December 9th, 2011 by Jack

Eli Chen has been busy, busy, busy detailing more on protesting gardeners, the arrest of five and a grassroots recycling initiative; Gwen McClure followed up an earlier story on a controversial housing development; and Evan Buxbaum reported on a different kind of fight for South Bronx boxers.

This week’s bonus: The NYPD Facebook story we discussed Tuesday, in case you missed it.  And this was one of the tools I used.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Before we gorge on turkey, let’s celebrate some more bylines.

The latest from the Mott Haven Herald includes: Eli Chen’s story about the fight to save a community garden; Evan Buxbaum’s article about a new documentary center in Melrose; Patricia Rey Mallén’s report on the closing of a beloved local restaurant; and Alex Robinson’s piece about a participatory budgeting exercise.

The bonus: Remember when I said comparisons are vital to give context to numbers in stories?  I had a short but sweet example last week.

Hark, the Herald bylines thing…

Alex Robinson had a story on Bronx residents joining the Occupy Wall Street protests.

And Eli Chen wrote about a focus on food in a Mott Haven Academy wellness program.

Now, we’re cookin’.

Even if you don’t make the school’s official “clips of the week,” I still notice.

Chloé Rouveyrolles had a piece on change coming to the 40th precinct.

And Eli Chen had news on chickens coming home to roost in Brook Park.

Keep up the good work!
