Quicklink: Juliet Linderman Says Goodbye To The Gazette
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Some of the folks reading this may not be in the know, but Greenpoint does have an independent newspaper. It is called the Greenpoint Gazette and until today it had one very dedicated, talented and cool reporter on its staff: Juliet Linderman. Do take a moment to read her final (sort of) piece for this publication. My favorite passage is as follows:
I started as the managing editor of the Greenpoint Gazette in October of 2008. I had just graduated from college and was dying to find a job—any job, really—in the newspaper biz. Before landing the position at the Gazette I lived in Park Slope (I moved to the nabe shortly thereafter), and had only made the trek up to Greenpoint a handful of times. I remember getting off the train on my first day and feeling confused. ‘Where am I?’ I thought. ‘It feels like the end of the earth out here.’
I suspect I speak on the behalf of many a Greenpointer when I write that I can overlook Ms. Linderman’s Park Slope past. She has— in conceivable every sense— become one of us. God help her.
Gabba Gabba Hey and good luck, Juliet! Your reportage will be missed.
