NIMBY Response to McDonald’s in Brooklyn

Jonathan Dalton, Phoenix Real Estate AgentCurbed is one of my guilty pleasures, even if I’ve only been to New York once. The photographs are enjoyable and the commentary is equally as pleasing.

Take this post about reactions to McDonald’s coming to a neighborhood in Brooklyn. Protests against Wal-Mart are fairly common out here, but anger over a proposed McDonald’s franchise? Seriously?

Here’s the larger question that Curbed has caused me to ponder. Is a similar site close to feasible here in Phoenix? Is there enough going on? Will local readers care enough to send in breaking news or neighborhood tidbits? Because that’s the only way such an effort is going to succeed – with help from the readers.

The rest of us only can be in so many places at once.
