Joe Downtown: Overheard at The Beat

“Does this remind you of, like, Austin, or Park Slope, Brooklyn? I’ve driven down here before; we’d call it ‘old town.' And they’d say, ‘Why do you want to go there?’ It’s a lot different now.”

One of four young men, attendees at the National Association of Broadcasters convention by the lanyards, Tuesday afternoon at The Beat Coffeehouse, Fremont and Sixth streets, across from the El Cortez.

Joe Schoenmann doesn’t just cover downtown, he lives and works there. Schoenmann is Greenspun Media Group’s embedded downtown journalist, working from an office in the Emergency Arts building.
