Searching for Rachael Ray

According to Google Trends, here are the 10 cities with the most searches for "Rachael Ray" during the last two years (2006, 2007):

20062007
1.Albany, NYAlbany, NY
2.Philadelphia, PARochester, NY
3.Tampa, FLPhiladelphia, PA
4.Boston, MANewark, NJ
5.St. Louis, MOTampa, FL
6.Minneapolis, MNLouisville, KY
7.New York, NYMinneapolis, MN
8.Atlanta, GASt Louis, MO
9.Orlando, FLRichardson, TX
10.Chicago, ILBoston, MA

Albany's top spot in both years is even more impressive when you take into account that it's the smallest city on the list (except for Rochester and maybe Richardson, TX, which is a suburb of Dallas). But before we crown Rachael queen of the Capital District, let's check out how she stacks up next to Oprah for searches from Albany in 2007...


Rachael Ray vs Oprah graph

According to Google Trends, the number of "Rachael Ray" searches doesn't even equal half the number of "Oprah" searches. All hail Oprah.

A few quick caveats: Google says the data from Google Trends are based on estimations and contain a number of approximations. And if you notice from the graph above, they don't give you any numbers for the y axis, so this could all be bit a squishy.

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
