This week saw the launch of EveryBlock, a site that aims to answer the simple question: “What’s happening in my neighborhood?” When we first heard of EveryBlock, it reminded us a lot of Outside.in, a site we featured back in October. EveryBlock gives users local information in all its virtual forms: stories from major newspapers and community weeklies (and blogs), updates on local ordinances and zoning news, relevant Craigslist postings, crime reports, Yelp reviews, and even geotagged Flickr photos. The site is currently available for residents in Chicago, San Francisco, and New York, with information searchable by municipality, neighborhood, zip, or block.
