Robert Guskind, who stamped his name and his neighborhood on the great map of Brooklyn blogging, is dead.
Guskind's Gowanus Louge site had been mysteriously down for days and just earlier today Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn had wondered, "What Happened to Gowanus Lounge?")
Guskind had apparently been through much personal turmoil, says The Brooklyn Paper.
His good friend Miss Heather (of NewYorkShitty blog) posted a video-taped interview he did. It reveals his character and his interests, which mostly had to do with Brooklyn and its Gowanus neighborhood.
It was an interview with a woman who mourns the Dickensnian transitions taking place in the borough, leaving a family home and immigrant dreams of decades ago in tatters.
Do yourself a favor and see it by going to NewYorkShitty.
