Hoodline Now Covers The Castro

By Andrew Dudley - Published on September 10, 2014.
Today we're very excited to announce a new member of the Hoodline family, as we begin offering daily news coverage of the Castro.

To do this, we're partnering with Roy McKenzie, founder of the Castro Biscuit, a blog which has been doing stellar work documenting the Castro for more than two years. Roy will be serving as Hoodline's Castro neighborhood editor, and all of the Castro Biscuit's content will become part of Hoodline (Biscuit commenters, your old (but precious!) comments will be back online shortly). 

The Castro is one of the most iconic and eclectic neighborhoods in the world, and it's located steps across Market Street from where our previous coverage area ended. Needless to say, we've been keeping an eye on the neighborhood for a while, and we can't wait to tell the stories, uncover the history, and meet the characters that make this neighborhood so special.

To follow Castro news on Hoodline.com, just select it from the list of neighborhoods in the sidebar of the home page. You can also follow Hoodline's Castro coverage on Facebook and Twitter—we're keeping the Castro Biscuit accounts alive.  And of course, the Castro will now appear as a neighborhood option in our iPhone app.

Finally, Roy will be getting editorial support from talented writers who live or work in the Castro. If you'd like to join them in contributing to Hoodline, please get in touch. And if you have any Castro-related tips or story ideas, let us know.

Thanks as always for reading—and to our new Castro readers, welcome to Hoodline.
