Bob Guskind, whose passion for his Brooklyn neighborhood turned into the popular Gowanus Lounge blog, passed away yesterday. Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn reports that the site was non-operational yesterday—"Readers and fellow bloggers were concerned that their phone calls, and texts were not being returned"—and his death was confirmed by an official from the ME's office (his body was apparently found in his Prospect Heights apartment). Guskind, who was also, until recently, the Brooklyn editor of Curbed, will be missed by many who followed his interest in Brooklyn development issues. Miss Heather has a lovely video of Guskind from this past weekend. Our condolences to his family and friends—and we will miss him, too. Update: The Brooklyn Paper has an account, which is, at turns, sensational and harsh, speculating about Guskind's death. Photo by Louise Crawford
