Welcome to the ‘bloggiest’ part of town - Development spurs on Bklyn bloggers


Courier-Life coverage of the May 10 Brooklyn Blogfest is a month late and two bloggers short. (NoLandGrab and Atlantic Yards Report to be precise.) This is a feat since the focus of the article is development.

Like a virtual Copernicus mapping a universe of words and thoughts, Outside.in, which is based – where else? – in the borough of Kings, recently determined that Clinton Hill was the bloggiest neighborhood in the country over the past six months, based on the number of posts on websites in 3,250 communities in 59 cities nationwide.

Part of the reason for the high level of blogging activity in Clinton Hill, according to Outside.in, is the intense level of real estate development in the neighborhood, which is adjacent to the controversial Atlantic Yards development.

As Atlantic Yards Report has pointed out, "of 30 posts on Outside.in's Clinton Hill page earlier in the day Thursday, only five were about that neighborhood, while 13 were about Prospect Heights and Atlantic Yards." (And nearly all were from NoLandGrab)
