We’re excited to start sharing Block Club, based in Buffalo, with a few of our neighbor cities. By now, you’ve noticed stories popping up in our newly re-designed format about cities in the Rust Belt region (and, in fact, around the world). We’re going to continue telling more stories from and about elsewhere, as we expand our vocabulary about what it means to be a 21st-century post-industrial city. Stay tuned for developments regarding that.
In the meantime, friends in Rochester, Syracuse and Pittsburgh will soon find free copies of Block Club in some of their favorite coffee shops, locally owned restaurants and independent retailers (see below).
You can also read online if you so desire. We’re on Facebook and Twitter, too. :-)
If you have ideas about where else you think Block Club would fit, let us know! We want to hear from you. Until then, thanks for reading and for sharing our stories for us.
