It came from the "Bloggiest Community in the Nation"

Ironically, we wouldn't be the nation's "bloggiest community" if the mainstream media (MSM) actually covered the Atlantic Yards project the way it should.

Meanwhile, the MSM is wringing their hands over how to compete with the blogosphere. Go figure...

It seems the proposed $4 billion Atlantic Yards project has bloggers all in a tizzy, according to outside.in's chief product officer, John Geraci.

Yesterday, a prospective buyer was asking about Third Ave. and Atlantic Yards. Today, it's North Slope.

Dope on the Slope, Bloggie Went A-Postin'
Brooklyn's own Hillbilly-in-Residence has new lyrics for the American classic:

Bloggie went a-postin’, and he did write, Uh-huh,
Bloggie went a-postin’, and he did write, Uh-huh,
Bloggie went a-postin’, and he did write.
With a mouse and a keyboard by his side, Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Uh-huh.

Well he wrote about the wrecking ball, Uh-huh,
Well he wrote about the wrecking ball, Uh-huh,
Well he wrote about the wrecking ball,
Eminent domain and suburban sprawl Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Uh-huh.

Yes, there's more, much more.

Curbed, A Look at the Atlantic Yards Unterwelt

I usually pull for the Nets too, and I'll continue to do so, as long as Bruce Ratner stays the fuck out of my hood.
