Building Community: One Story at a Time


There have been so many inspiring stories and fun events from the neighborhood, it’s hard to know which were our favorites to cover.

One year ago, we set out to bring daily news to our neighbors in Longfellow and Seward. What we didn’t realize at the time was what a whirlwind of experiences we were stepping into. It’s an honor to meet so many of the amazing people that make up our community and tell their story. But, really, it’s the community’s story – and the one thing we’ve found is that most everyone we meet is working to make our neighborhood better – in big and small ways. So keep it up! Y’all are an inspiration.

We plan on keeping up our end of the bargain – sharing great stories and working to connect neighbors to make our community stronger. Be sure to keep up with all of the latest news:

Help us spread the word – let your friends and neighbors know about My Broadsheet.
