Citysquares Upgrades Design, Features

The Boston-based local site has added many familiar “Web 2.0” features and introduced a new design, which I like on first blush. It offers more participation, photos (with Flickr), profiles, events (Zvents), local news (Topix), Virtual Earth map integration and personalization.


Here’s my original post on the company.

What’s interesting, though not unique to Citysquares, is that it’s not a yellow pages site nor a newspaper site but it has elements of both: local business listings and local news and events. It doesn’t have classifieds but it could easily have added local classifieds to make for more use cases. It could also have chosen to add groups.

Nonetheless it’s a nice redesign, with clear navigation and lots of features built around neighborhoods, which is the kind of detail that locals want.

    Do you know by chance who designed the site? I am looking for a web designer and I think they did a great job with CitySquare?
