In case anyone is wondering why I haven't been around as much recently, I've been spending a lot of time over on my new neighborhood blog - Bergen Carroll. Bergen Carroll began a few months ago as a little pet project to provide the best area in Brooklyn - Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens and Red Hook - with a robust community resource, covering neighborhood developments and cultural events in addition to providing an outlet for residents to chat, comment and connect with each other. While it's still only in beta, the site has begun to catch fire. We have four talented writers involved and several other neighborhood loyalists with online publishing experience putting together an exciting list of programming and features. Traffic is starting to flow, even though we haven't really told anybody yet:) So....if you don't see me here for a few days in a row, come on over to Bergen Carroll and check out what's happening there.
