Gothamist and DNAinfo Have Shut Down

If you read local New York City news online, you have lost two resources.

Gothamist and DNAinfo, two of the most popular sites for New Yorkers and people who are just curious about New York City, closed after employees voted to join a union.  Other regional sites owned by publisher Joe Ricketts, including SFist, have also shut down.

Mr. Ricketts has posted negatively about unions on his blog, and a link to an anti-union blog post appears below.

There’s also a link to a New York Times article on the closure.  The Times article lists names of other, extant NYC news sites, in blue text.  Click those names to go to the sites.
