Robert Guskind 1958 – 2009: Founder of Gowanus Lounge Dies
I found out yesterday that his immensely popular blog, which focuses on real estate and development issues in Park Slope, Gowanus, Williamsburg and Coney Island, was non-operational.
Readers and fellow bloggers were concerned that their phone calls, emails and texts were not being returned.
This morning, Susan Fox of Park Slope Parents received an anonymous text that Bob was dead.
His death is now confirmed. A communications official at the Medical Examiners Office told me that he died on March 4th, 2009.
This is very sad news for the Brooklyn Blog community. My condolences to his wife and loved ones.
This picture was taken by Hugh Crawford at last year's Brooklyn Blogfest. I know the year of his birth because we talked about the fact that we were both
born in 1958.
New York Shitty posted an incredible video that she and Bob made one day in Greenpoint; an interview with a fascinating woman with great stories to tell.
