53 Boerum: A Micro-Local Blog Grows in Brooklyn

Welcome to the brave new world of micro-neighborhood blogging, brought to you by those happy campers over at 53 Boerum. The recently finished 99-unit condo complex known as Boulevard East has its very own unofficial site and message board, complete with a stylish illustration of the building (like the one at right) and Flash-animated clouds.

Recent topics include the Atlantic Antic ("Just outside our windows we could see the kiddies riding on ponies up and down Boerum Place"), nearby development projects, how Google Maps registers the building's address ("53 Brooklyn Bridge Blvd."), and even the occasional celebrity resident spotlight, such as one about Broadway actor Peter Kim.
