If you like what we’ve been doing with our daily newsletter, website and community outreach during the pandemic, please consider supporting W42ST. We’ve had over 250 readers do so already, either as one-offs or monthly contributions. We plan to increase our editorial coverage during the rest of 2020, and to continue to keep you connected, updated and (most of all) upbeat.

Here’s what one supporter told us: “Hey W42ST team – I eagerly open your newsletter every single day. It’s a funny and well-written break from national politics and a global pandemic. Honestly, though, I’m not usually one to read newsletters. Yours however is different. Through it you provide laughs, value, and insight into HK’s best stories! It’s the flat out best newsletter that I have ever subscribed to. Keep Doing What You’re Doing!”
