So, 366 days later (2016 was a leap year) we “circled back” to these local titans to find out if they delivered on the pledges they made before god and Mother Brooklyn herself. Comments (1)

Page 1: In this week’s former Brooklyn Paper reporter profile, we turn the time machine dial back to the early teens, when we tried something different: hire a reporter who was actually born and raised in Brooklyn. That reporter was Natalie Musumeci, a Brooklyn College grad who we took a chance on because of her go-get-’em attitude and outright moxie. In those halcyon days when our newsroom was stocked with talent, Musumeci hit the ground running, taking on the coveted Bay Ridge beat where she kicked a-- and took names. But she didn’t really hit her stride until she began working in her hometown, Carroll Gardens, which se did for about two weeks before being snatched by the Daily News. She now works at the Post, where she always keeps hustlin’, Brooklyn. Comment
