Title: Jackson Heights Word Cloud
Post by: Matt on March 12, 2014, 02:17:35 PM
I came across this on curbed today. Words commonly used by real estate brokers in ads describing properties in NYC neighborhoods are shown in a word cloud. The most widely used appear the most prominent. In the case of Jackson Heights, that word appears to be beautiful.

"Suitey, a new software-powered real estate brokerage, mobilized its software developers to scan MLS rental and sale listings in neighborhoods across New York City in order to come up with a barrage of word clouds. They reveal which words and phrases brokers are using to pitch their properties, and it's weirdly enlightening." - Hana R. Alberts / Curbed

Here is a link to more of the neighborhoods Suitey made word clouds for: http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/03/12/how_do_brokers_use_babble_to_describe_homes_in_your_hood.php (http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/03/12/how_do_brokers_use_babble_to_describe_homes_in_your_hood.php)
