What’s happening near me? SpotCorner was established to bring New Yorkers the news happening near where they live, work and anywhere else. While it’s impossible to keep up with the news websites, blogs and other sources, we follow the latest news, crime, real estate updates, restaurant reviews, hidden histories and anything else to uncover what’s happening across the city.

There are several ways to experience SpotCorner. If you’re new here, or find yourself in a new neighborhood, our Main Map lets you see all of our entries, and lets you immediately see what’s happened closest to you. Our recent news highlights news from the past several days.

We also post spotlights on our blog.  Want to see the best burgers? Or what construction is happening in Queens? We regularly compile maps that give New Yorkers a sense of what’s happening where.

At SpotCorner, we put the grid at your fingertips.
