In the Clouds! The Nomenclature of Craigslist Apartments

curbed heatmap e1320960963596 In the Clouds! The Nomenclature of Craigslist ApartmentsAs part of its Renters Week—which The Observer is thoroughly enjoying—our pals over at Curbed held what they’re calling the Craiglist Power Hour, 60 minutes of non-stop blogging devoted to the odious listings site. Therein appeared the best graphic (above) we’ve seen all week, maybe even all month, a word cloud of the most common words in Craigslist apartment listing. We were so taken with the endeavor, The Observer decided to plug each borough’s listings into Wordle and see what patterns emerged. Check out the interesting, if at times unsurprising—Williamsburg much?—results.
