We wanted to mention that our friends at the Educational Alliance recently launched a new neighborhood blog. It’s called Building Blocks and features a variety of stories about the people and programs that make up one of the Lower Side’s oldest and largest community organizations. Quite a few neighborhood non-profits have been focusing on social media in the past couple of years. The Educational Alliance has been particularly active on twitter and Facebook. In recent months, we’ve been talking with quite a few community organizations about their plans to do expand their reach online. It’s great to see Edgies launching this new venture! Check it out.
