Cool New Thing: EveryBlock's Neighborhood Newsfeeds

Joining the likes of Outside.in in the neighborhood news aggregation game is EveryBlock, which launched yesterday. The site doesn't do nearly as thorough a job as Outside.in of summarizing local blog coverage, but it does mashup a lot more data. Search for a neighborhood or zipcode to find recent building permits, crime data, and the like, viewable by newsfeed or map. One small glitch concerns the neighborhood names—the map above puts Little Italy north of the West Village, rebrands Hudson Square as Hudson Yards, and dumps Union Square in the Financial District. On the bright side, EveryBlock does aggregate Craigslist Missed Connections posts.
