History

NYU Local was founded by Cody Brown and Lily Q in 2008.[2]

NYU Local made news in 2009 when it embedded a live blogger into the Take Back NYU! Student Protest.[3] The protest coverage, which spanned for 3 days received links from prominent news websites. [4] [5]Gawker cited NYU Local as the, "Definitive Food Court Occupatory Journalism source."[6] New York Magazine, said NYU Local has done, "an excellent (and really, grueling) job of covering the student protest circus over at NYU."[5].
