There's a running joke at Street about our website. Well, it's not really a joke. It's more of a universal truth: our website sucks. It makes no sense. It is buggy and visually offensive. It is a bizarre medley of the newest articles pushed to the bottom of the site, and old, outdated features somehow making their way to the front page. It is terrible. 

Or, at least, it was. Now, Street has the pleasure of presenting our new website. A beautiful, clean, intuitive site, designed and coded by the absolutely brilliant DP web development team. 

We've done everything we can to make our content as good as it possibly can be, and we continue to work hard to improve. Last year, it was always so hugely disappointing to see an article or illustration or photo that our staff worked so hard on represented so poorly on the website. And now, there's something so intensely gratifying about seeing that content represented visually in the way it deserves to be represented. Finally, our website reflects what we know Street to be: it is playful, it is engaging, and it beautifully crafted. 

On behalf of the entire Street exec and staff, I would like to issue a huge, gushing, overwhelming thank you to Alex, Andrew, and Ilana for crafting a beautiful home for Street. It's an unbelievable feeling to have tangible evidence of your successes, and I hope you three savor the irreplaceable rush of knowing you've accomplished something spectacular. 

Thank you so very much for your time and patience and devotion to this project. As for everyone else, I hope you enjoy our beautiful, brand–new website. It is truly a labor of love.
