'Who's My Landlord?' Cover Story Inspires Useful Website, App
In November, the Voice published a cover story that turned the maddening effort by slumlords to cover their tracks into a mock board game.
Little did we know that some web geeks would get inspired and turn our make-believe project into an actual, and useful game!
A team of web designers who call themselves The Great Urban Hack turned 'Who's My Landlord?' into a website and iPhone app that will turn any curious tenant into a property sleuth.
The app and website is pretty slick, and it's going to save us (and curious tenants) many, many hours of work searching for information that you could previously find only in separate places.
So check it out. Go to the site, type in your building. See how much it sold for, who owns it, and how many violations and 3-1-1 complaints there are on the building. Give them your feedback.
Hey guys: We're flattered!
