And the Blog Goes On
New York Times
By Samantha Storey
This article takes a look at New York City real estate blogs and the challenges they face with the downturn in the real estate market. One Brooklynite quoted mentions the proposed Atlantic Yards project as a topic that he follows via the real estate blogs.
Louis Rosenfeld, who lives in Park Slope, started visiting Brownstoner last summer when he was looking for an apartment. He closed on a co-op in the fall, but is still reading the site.
“I find it interesting to use as a lens for what’s going on in the borough,” said Mr. Rosenfeld, a book publisher.
He said he liked the site’s broad approach. “I can find out what is happening with the Atlantic Yards and in neighborhoods like Ditmas Park and Flatbush.” He also said it was difficult to find news about these smaller neighborhoods in mainstream media.
