BACKSTORIES ARE IN SUPER-ABBREVIATED forms as I give the blog a rethink and a revamp. The past few weeks have taken me all over the city for WSJ sussing out hidden neighborhoods (and content to be so), those that are about to blossom, and new things happening in old places. A few brief summaries:
Manhattan Valley, the Upper West Side’s long-overlooked neighborhood. Until now.
Sugar Hill, where life is still sweet decades after the neighborhood’s name was at its most popular.
JFK Worldport: A terminal case.
Long Island City gets its own Food & Flea. So there, Brooklyn!
