Park Place

In poking around to see if Brooklyn had a borough baseball league -- like the team in the town I grew up in. Nothing doing, it seems, but New York City's Parks and Recreation department has an extremely impressive Web site.

What wowed me? The Your Park section includes an interactive park map with which you can search for parks based on ZIP code. And each park gets its own minisite, which features all sorts of information. The minisite for the park I live by, Monsignor McGolrick Park, includes details about the pavilion, the war memorial, the Monitor and Merrimack monument, and the park's history.

Thanks, New York!

Update: The Westchester/Rockland Wood Bat League covers New York City -- and includes a team based in Brooklyn! Hooray for the Brooklyn Falcons.
