ChicagoCrime shutting down

Not, unfortunately, the concept of crime in Chicago, but the seminal chicagocrime.org website — one of the first Google Map mashups and a great resource for Chicago since its launch in 2005. Developer Adrian Holovaty announced today on his blog that ChicagoCrime will not be available after today. All of the features of the site have been rolled into his new project, Everyblock (which I mentioned last week).

Holovaty also mentioned that in just a few weeks chicagocrime.org will be featured in an exhibit at New York’s MoMA.

    Man I cant stand everyblock. This site infuriates me cuz its so hard to use. There are just so many neighborhoods in Chicago and it was better when you searched crimes for police districts. Plus I hate how they dont use a google map and I hate how its so fucking hard to navigate. I get a headache from everyblock.
