An American University grad student, Friederike Brand, has assembled a map of neighborhood blogs that illustrates in a dramatic manner the development of neighborhood blogs in DC. Neighborhood blogs are, in general, concentrated in areas of gentrification and neighborhoods that tend to attract the young and single. The District’s more settled areas, especially in the Northwest, Cleveland Park and above as well as the poorer areas, don’t have many neighborhood blogs, although more are beginning to appear. Is there anything to conclude from this and what changes are ahead? (Here’s our most up-to-date listing of neighborhood blogs.)
