Thanks to what we must assume is the intervention of our friends Elizabeth Spiers and Nick Denton, Gothamist got a mention in an actual New York Times article, which hasn't happened since 1997: A New York State of Blog.

Nick got quoted in the other blogging article that was running in the Times today. And somehow, Jonathan Van Gieson.com got mentioned in both articles, which makes me think that "Warren St. John" might be his nom de plume. Maybe I'll call Jayson Blair and ask for the inside scoop. Final thought: you know it's a slow news day when there are two blogging articles running on the front page of the NYTimes.com.

New: Jen on the other Times blogging article about dating and blogging.
