The City Room, as the new blog is being called, will be manned by Sewell Chan, Times Metro reporter and will draw upon the resources of The Times’s one hundred-plus-person Metro staff for content.

The City Room blog will, according to the New York Times, provide depth reporting from each of the city’s five boroughs. Reports will also be drawn occassionally from the suburbs. Examples of topics covered will include “government and politics; crime and public safety; schools; transportation; housing and economy; and people and neighborhoods.” It will enhance and supplement Metro articles from The Times, offer non-news features about the history and civic culture of the city, and encourage reader comments and discussion.

Features of City Room will include expanded Times photography, Web videos, news profiles on neighborhoods and original documents and Web resources.
