Brick Underground Includes PMFA On List Of 24 Best NYC Neighborhood Blogs

Brick Underground, the popular New York City real estate survival guide, has just compiled its 2015 list of Best New York City Neighborhood Blogs. And Pardon Me For Asking made the cut once again. Virginia K. Smith, who put together the list, writes
"Katia Kelly, a decades-long Carroll Gardens resident, still does an impeccable job keeping tabs on Carroll Gardens and Gowanus goings-on, usually with the help of large, bright original photos (a must for any savvy local outlet). As a community activist, she's particularly on top of covering neighborhood events and providing tidy summaries of community board meetings to help locals keep tabs on the dramatic amount of new development that's hit the neighborhood since she founded the blog in 2006. For Gowanus residents, her blog is also now the only game in town, with Gowanus Your Face Off having quietly shut down over the past year."
Thanks for including my site and for recognizing neighborhood bloggers and their contribution to their community, Brick Underground. I am honored.

Kudos. Very well deserved. You're the only reason I have any idea what is going on in the neighborhood.

That's very sweet, Gary. Thanks.

Much, much deserved recognition.

The energy you give to our community is amazing, many of us out here are grateful.

Katia said...

Marlene, thanks for your wonderful sentiment. So happy I have friends like you in the neighborhood.

Please keep it up, keep it going -- many people use your blog the way they use the NY Times or NPR. You are performing a real service. I wish you had the time and a staff to expand and keep people even more aware of what we all need to notice and think about.

Katia said...

Bette, I would love to expand, but would hate to lose my voice if I did. More than anything, PMFA is a labor of love, a way for me to give back to the community.

Greetings Katia,

Brick Underground got it right! Congrats! Well deserved! For those of us who moved away, you are the window to home. GOD bless you for all you do!

Katia said...

You are too wonderful, Mrs. G. can't wait for you to come to Brooklyn so that we can do our yearly lunch.

Thanks J and E. Yup, been writing this little blog for 9 years. How the time passes.
Will see you both in just a few days.
