We are pleased to announce that DumboNYC is now operating under the ownership of BlankSlate, a Dumbo-based media company and publisher of Brooklyn’s leading online publication, Brownstoner.
With BlankSlate at the helm, DumboNYC will continue to provide opportunities for locals and tourists to dive into the delights of this thriving neighborhood.
“This is a natural evolution for DumboNYC,” said the site’s founder Hide Harashima. “BlankSlate has been our partner since 2011 and they will continue to provide coverage, with more resources to do so. I’m happy to see the neighborhood’s footprint grow and know the site is in great hands.”
Founded in 2006, DumboNYC has published more than 3,000 articles about local life and culture.
Under BlankSlate, the site will continue to explore Dumbo’s unique history, cover evolving stories like the Brooklyn Tech Triangle, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and keep abreast of the day to day news surrounding the neighborhood’s cultural events, education, retail, and residential and office development.
Already, BlankSlate has started adding new features to the site, including showcases where local businesses can connect and interact directly with the site’s visitors.
“We are committed to further building DumboNYC and carrying its legacy,” said Kael Goodman, BlankSlate’s CEO, “and we look forward to sharing DumboNYC with you.”
