New Brooklyn Blog: General Greene
The first thing we'll say about the brand new Fort Greene blog called General Greene is that we're looking forward to big things from it. It's the work of two Fort Greene residents, Jim Colgan and Scott Lamb, and features an excellent mix of neighborhood posts including some excellent items about the neighborhood's long history. Check out yesterday's post on a meeting about creating a new Fort Greene/Clinton Hill food coop and, then, check out an excellent post comparing prices of products ordered at Fresh Direct versus the same products purchased at the Park Slope Food Coop. For something completely different, there's this post with some interesting history about Fort Greene Park. The blog bills itself as "Stories of, about and from Fort Greene" and it takes its name from General Nathanial Greene, for whom Fort Greene is named. We offer General Greene a warm and big welcome and look forward to reading it and learning from it every day.
