How often do you read Gothamist? In the morning to see if there's a subway meltdown? During lunch to find a new place for dinner? In the afternoon when you're bored at work? All of the above?

We're so glad to be back, and at our new home at WNYC. During these past months we've brought you a wide range of stories about life in New York. We tackled the mass Tinder date scam. We shared how you can explore the brave, new world of CBD. We cataloged the city’s endearing oddities into a bingo card. We’ve covered the never-ending issues with the subway. We’ve examined the affordability crisis that’s gripping our city. And, yes, we revealed Cynthia Nixon’s unusual bagel sandwich order.

There’s one important partner that makes all our work possible: YOU. Gothamist is now reader-supported local news. Your donations make Gothamist possible.

2018_09_gtotemug1.jpgAt a time when local news in New York City is facing more challenges than at any time in recent memory, the Gothamist team is here, bringing you reporting about the issues and events that are vital to the social fabric of New York.

If Gothamist is an integral part of your life, we have something that will let you show off your appreciation for Gothamist: Keep us going with a donation of $10 per month, and we'll send you a Gothamist tote AND a Gothamist mug. Show everyone that you're a superfan and that you value independent, local news.

Just like Gothamist is central to your experience of New York, YOU are central to Gothamist. And if you pledge by midnight, Sunday, September 30, you'll be entered to win a brunch with Gothamist staffers at Russ & Daughters!*
