Hi RS,
I tried to get the Advance interested in this website a few months back. They used to do a North Shore/South Shore series but then they changed the columns to just "Neighborhoods." I e-mailed a reporter and told him that I thought a story about this wonderful virtual neighborhood would be good -- for Staten Island and for us. I didn't get much of a response. I don't know if its because SILIVE has its own forums or not. Who knows? As for teachers recommending the site, I have encouraged my students to visit, but I don't know if they have. I haven't come across any that I know of, unless they are lurking.
Maybe somebody else can generate interest among the members of the press for our little piece of cyber-StatNisland.
