Consider Tribeca

One of my new favorite blogs is The Built Environment, which recently posted about Tribeca.

TriBeCa is defined by its edges. Even the name — Triangle Below Canal — comes from its northern boundary, not a landmark like Flatiron or a geographic characteristic like Cobble Hill. It is this lack of a uniting feature, geographic or constructed, which causes TriBeCa to feel so decentralized and empty.

I like how The Built Enviornment integrates images with text to construct a post, rather than allowing one to merely support the other. Not to mention, it’s intelligent, well-thought out stuff (minus the tiresome need to snark everything up). To see this post and others, click here.
