are known as communities where residential, business and civic life intersect. Ethnically and economically diverse, culturally prolific and


politically eclectic, Uptown is an ideal context for a community newspaper. And we are indeed thriving.


Two years after launching in Uptown, we can boast a distribu- tion of 22,000 papers, including delivery to 13,000 homes and 350 high-traffic locations, along with more than 4,000 unique visits monthly via our digital issue at: sduptownnews.com.


This issue celebrates our achievement—one that’s no small feat in an industry and economy under siege, but a success that we recognize is largely due to the diverse environment Uptown provides for us to cover. The neighborhoods of Up-


town sustain us, and we aspire to continue to herald the com- munity’s history, culture and close collaboration between business and residential dis- tricts while remaining impartial observers of the issues the area faces.


As we pass our two-year


marker, we’re happy to put our teething stage behind us and
