This is the inaugural post for The Brooklyn Optimist! The Brooklyn Optimist is an online newspaper created by filmmaker and professor Morgan Pehme to focus on all things Brooklyn through the discerning lens of its most optimistic community journalist and citizen.
Please bear with me as I get a handle on the technological side of blogging. Once I'm up to speed, I'll be contributing regular articles on Brooklyn politics, the environment, arts and entertainment, local businesses, restaurants, and community activism.
I'm looking forward to exploring Brooklyn with you!
