Queenswest website closes after 15 years

queenswestMay 2, 2017 Staff Report

The popular website has closed after being in operation for more than 15 years.

The operator of the site, Jake, wrote on the site that he had built the site in 1998 when Twitter and Facebook didn’t exist and there were few places to find information or talk about the happenings in the neighborhood.

Jake wrote that blogs, Facebook pages and company websites have fulfilled those needs and he doesn’t have time to keep up with the exploding amount of content or the updates.

He has no plans to sell the site.
