Anonymous said: Hey I am a local Bronx guy (Woodstock nabe) and love the blog and timely info. Just wanted to know your story, since I didn't see any "about me" option on the site. Thanks. Jay
I’m just a local BX guy myself and wanted to make it easier for people to learn about things happening in the Bronx. I didn’t think anyone would care about my story so I never bothered with it besides a few personal posts.
