The Local’s robust archives will remain right here at – because we know how important preservation is to East Villagers. A while back, The Local was featured on one of Jim Power’s iconic lampposts.
Now that the site is coming to a close, we thought we’d return the honor by featuring the Mosaic Man in some tile work of our own: a collage of just some of the people who make the East Village what it is, for better or worse (mostly for better, we’re happy to say).

Over the course of two a half years, the word “change” has come up in many of The Local’s 4,200-plus posts about the East Village. Bedford + Bowery will continue to cover breaking news, big issues, and cultural events in the East Village and Lower East Side while also exploring three kindred neighborhoods directly across the river: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick.
