The Herald is moving to new offices; excess furniture available for non-profits | Evening Digest
The Hyde Park Herald is moving its offices to a new location.
After five years in the Hyde Park Bank building at 1525 E. 53rd St., the Herald shared space at the Experimental Station, 6100 S. Blackstone Ave.
Since 2006, the Experimental Station has been working to nurture initiates from small businesses and communities and to build an independent cultural infrastructure on the south side of Chicago. Over the years, they have helped develop several journalism firms including Invisible Institute, City Bureau, and South Side Weekly.
“The move gives the Herald the opportunity to expand its journalistic resources by working with other news organizations affiliated with Experimental Station,” said Randall Weissman, editor and publisher of the Herald. “More resources available should mean more and better coverage for our readers, both online and in print.”
Please note that the Herald’s contact information will not change. The email addresses and phone numbers remain unchanged. (See page 2 of the printed edition and the Herald website for a listing of this information.)
The move means the Herald will have an excess of office furniture. If you know of a nonprofit that wants free office furniture, please contact Randall Weissman at 773-358-3132 or email [email protected]
Desks, filing cabinets, and bookcases are among the items available. They will be distributed according to availability.
The Herald’s move will take place on June 23rd, and the July 2nd edition will be the first to be produced at its new location.
