The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.
Blogging From: BoCoCaLand
If you are a parent in Brooklyn and you don’t frequent the blog BoCoCaLand, then you’re missing out on a wealth of information about your neighborhood. Everything from local news, to opinion pieces, to suggestions for restaurants and shopping in the Brooklyn area, this blog truly has it all. Ran by Tobey Grumet Segal, Josh Robertson, and Andrew Carbone, local parents in different areas of Brooklyn, this blog answers any questions you may have about recent or future happenings, and more. Written primarily for parents in the BoCoCa neighborhoods (Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, and Boerum Hill), this blog gives a voice to the community. Message boards allow for local parents to communicate about any number of topics, and find a way to make life better in the community.
The site offers directories for libraries, parking, post offices, and birthday party locations, as well as helpful information on who to contact for help with getting your child into a good school. This resource for Brooklyn residents has many uses; as a jump-off for gossip with your neighbors, a where-to guide, or an outlet to voice your opinions on this ever-changing area of the city. No matter what service you may need in relation with the Brooklyn area, this blog will be able to help, if not directly, then by the many references also offered on the site. So next time you’re planning an outing in Brooklyn, consult BoCoCaLand! -- Richard Stile
