NearSay, a new local and hyperlocal news site, has been launched in Manhattan according to a report by Lost Remote.
The site reportedly uses both aggregated information chosen by editors as well as stories currently filed by around 80 contributors.
According to NearSay’s website, its mission is “high quality neighbourhood news”:
- Let you personalise the news. You tell us what neighborhoods and topics you care about;
- Manage a veteran newsroom that covers the stories from your favorite publications, so there is less clutter in your inbox;
- Curate every story on the site for quality and feature just the best of NearSay;
- Show you the influential local voices who tell the inside scoop of what’s happening.
Lost Remote says it believes the site will branch out beyond Manhatten soon.
