Due to popular demand, we've added location-specific RSS feeds to EveryBlock. For more information about RSS, see the useful What is RSS? site.
Now you can subscribe to an RSS feed for any ZIP code, neighborhood or even block in Chicago, New York and San Francisco. Just navigate to the location page you're interested in (by using the search box or the "Streets" or "Neighborhoods" links on your city's home page) and look for the "RSS" link near the upper right.
There's an interesting challenge in producing RSS feeds for EveryBlock's information: We want to find the balance between frequency and relevance, giving you news near you without overwhelming you. The way we're attempting to handle this challenge is by grouping RSS feed items at the data-type level.
For example, if you live near many popular restaurants, chances are your feed has a lot of business/restaurant reviews, and it's overwhelming to get a new RSS item each time a new review comes in. Hence, we've engineered it such that you'll only get a single new RSS entry per type, per day. In other words, you'll get a single RSS entry with the title "24 business reviews new on January 24," and the body of the entry will contain direct links to each review.
We're making a special exception for news articles, which are infrequent and important enough that they each merit a separate entry in an RSS feed.
If you use RSS, give our feeds a shot and let us know how they're working for you. I can only expect we'll be tweaking the formatting over time.
