STATE OF THE SITE
Last time I ran a State of the Site, in December of 2011, TribecaCitizen.com consistently received 100,000 monthly pageviews from 20,000 unique visitors. Over the past six months, the site has averaged 122,500 monthly pageviews from 21,000 unique visitors (in the past month, there have been 26,700 unique visitors). The newsletter, meanwhile, has grown from 1,307 subscribers then to 2,095 now. This is harder to quantify, but circumstantially the Tribeca Citizen brand has gained an extraordinary amount of traction, and reader participation—from comments to tips to photos to questions and beyond—has grown exponentially. That’s huge, because it makes covering the neighborhood infinitely easier. So thanks again! For more glorious transparency—including ways you can lend a hand (or buy the site outright!)—click here.

FIELD TRIP: BEHIND THE SCENES AT GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL
When Adam saw that the Historic Districts Council was offering a tour of Grand Central Terminal, we couldn’t resist—he has always wanted to get inside the glass catwalks above the Apple store, and I like to go anywhere I’ve never been, particularly if it’s typically off-limits. The full report, including an explanation of how I got the photo above.
