Bushwick Daily was started in October 2010, originally as a photo blog about the new neighborhood of former lawyer born and raised in Slovakia, Katarina Hybenova. “The idea was to post one photo every day. That’s why Bushwick Daily,” says Katarina and laughs. Inspired by the residents she has met and the stories she has heard, Katarina soon expanded the blog to record and comment about this fascinating era of Bushwick and New York.
Later on Katarina’s endeavors were joined by Maria Gotay, Wesley Salazar, Sean Alday and a number of others thanks to whom Bushwick Daily has grown into its current reach and size.
Katarina Hybenova was invited on a full scholarship to further research questions pertaining to running a successful hyperlocal publication as a 2014 fellow at Tow Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
