I am rooting for the folks behind Narratively, a digital publication about "New York's untold stories."
Narratively slows down the news cycle. Each week, we’ll explore a different theme about New York and publish a series of connected stories -- just one a day -- told in the most appropriate medium for each piece. We might feature a longform article with portrait photos on a Monday, followed by an animated documentary on Tuesday, then a photo essay, an audio piece or a short documentary film.

We’ll even get you involved in theme and story selection.
