I’m happy to announce that the blog you’re presently reading is now renewshaw.com !!! I will maintain the remakingleslumhistorique.blogspot.com address, so there’s no need to change your links, but I will hold out the renewshaw.com name and address as the official title and address of this blog. While I might tweak the look of the blog over the coming weeks, I don’t anticipate any changes to what I discuss. I decided to change the name of the blog almost immediately
after I began blogging about Shaw, realizing that the original name was a bit wordy, hard to remember, and too negative sounding given the context of my writing. The new name attempts a bit of a play on words and, I believe, is more in line with the substance of my posts than the prior name: I speak regarding (or "re:") the Shaw of today--an increasingly amenity filled, development hotspot with a diverse population and rich history--and I speak as an advocate for the general renewal of the neighborhood.
Anyway, I hope that you like the new name and that you continue reading this blog as we all help make Shaw a great place to live.
