Crowdsourced neighborhood feeds are proving such a great idea, purveyor Neigborhoodr has branched out the service to 25 cities outside its New York stomping ground. The wonderful news has been posted on Neighborhoodr HQ, whose avowed mission is to:
“Neighborhoodr is a local neighborhood blog network where anyone can quickly and easily post about what’s happening in their neighborhood without having to log in or register.
Have news you’d like to share about your neighborhood? Just use the share buttons along the top of the page.”
The new cities are:
Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle.
The expansion came with a message from the Neighborhoodr team:
“Over time, cities will have their individual neighborhoods represented, as the demand for that neighborhood presents itself. Tell us what’s happening in your neighborhood by clicking one of the links at the top of each city page. If we receive or see enough content from any particular neighborhood, we’ll launch a neighborhood page devoted to that hood.”
Neighborhoodr was launcheded by Richard Blakely and Andrew De Rosa in their quest to create the world’s “only” hyperlocal blog that leverages the Tumblr platform. It seems to be working and since the founding team are seasoned media veterans, neighborhoods might just become a lot more interesting thanks to them.
