From The Real Deal:
Queens Crap chronicles the daily frustrations of residents, especially when it comes to real estate — the blog’s logo proclaims its focus on the “overdevelopment and ‘tweeding’ of a borough.”
The blog’s unpaid and anonymous founder told TRD that the site focuses on “what many would consider to be small issues, but are big issues to those affected by them, like missing lane markers on a repaved highway, or a developer tearing down a quaint old one-family home and replacing it with a multi-unit nightmare.”
But the site also covers large-scale developments, like the Bloomberg administration’s proposal for a new mall, tennis stadium and soccer stadium at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
Queens Crap — where all contributors and commenters are kept anonymous to protect them from retribution — has no advertising or monthly site stats, though it has gotten 5.2 million page views since 2006, according to a tracker on the blog.
“I do it because I know many people throughout the borough are affected by the same issues, and in order to effect positive change, they need to know they are not alone,” the blogger told TRD in an e-mail.
