From The L Magazine's Best of Brooklyn: "Best Local Blog" is... this one

Atlantic Yards Report

From The L Magazine's The Best of Brooklyn, the cover package in the issue dated August 3:

Best Local Blog
Atlantic Yards Report
Many might have given up on fighting the Atlantic Yards development, seeing it as a lost cause, an inevitability. But Norman Oder's watchdog blog, now in its sixth year, is still attacking the project—its false promises and environmental costs, as well as its credulous media coverage—several times a day.

By the way, no one told me about this, beforehand or after publication. I learned of it when I picked up a copy of the print magazine two days ago.

NoLandGrab: Let us be the first to congratulate Atlantic Yards Report for unseating NoLandGrab as best local blog, a title we held for six years running.

OK, actually, we've never been named Best Local Blog. Maybe we oughta launch "The Grabbies."
