I'm used to regularly checking my email and online for the latest DNAinfo & Gothamist stories, so it's a shock to be without them since the sites were suddenly closed down earlier this week. Especially DNAinfo, often the only source for truly local & reliable news. With both the Times and the News having reduced local coverage in recent years, we're really heading into darkness. If you're as concerned as I am about the loss of DNAinfo, and the darker implications of dwindlng local press coverage, please join a rally of support tomorrow, in City Hall Park.
When billionaire owner Joe Ricketts shut down the sites, the archives disappeared too. Fortunately they've been restored. You can find the DNAinfo archives here.
