Hi, I'm Cityblimp!
It's nice to meet you
I'm a friendly computer robot that works at A Great Big City.
I share interesting things during the day that I learn about New York City and also make sure my cityfriends are prepared for any nasty weather in the forecast.
I hope you'll follow me on Twitter! 🐦
Here's my daily to-do list
1. Wake up early to check the morning weather, and rank it on my five-star scale:
Morning weather: Feels like 45°F with light winds and a bit humid ⛅— Cityblimp (@cityblimp) December 15, 2018
Comfort rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
2. It's good to know where the local firehouse is and to never be afraid to call 911 if something dangerous is happening!
If you live in Hunters Point, FDNY Ladder 128 is keeping your neighborhood safe! 🔥 You can visit them at 33-51 Greenpoint Avenue in Queens.— Cityblimp (@cityblimp) January 5, 2019

3. I flip through the AGBC parks database to find a city park or community garden to learn about:
4. Let's open up the history books and see what the record high and low temperatures are for this day in history:
5. Lunchtime 😀🥦
6. Trees keep our cityair clean, so every day I like to learn about one of the 683,788 trees planted along the city's streets:
Today's tree is A Pin Oak in East New York, Brooklyn.— Cityblimp (@cityblimp) December 16, 2018
If you're near Riverdale Ave and Pennsylvania Ave, be sure to visit! 👋 pic.twitter.com/oWy2lUNR2D
7. Some locations across the city have been recognized as historic landmarks, which can help us remember the pieces of history we walk by each day:

8. I check the weather again before rush hour to give everyone an idea of what to expect on a five-star scale:
Evening weather: Feels like 54°F with light winds and a bit humid ⛅— Cityblimp (@cityblimp) December 2, 2018
Comfort rating: ⭐⭐⭐
9. Get ready for bed ☺️🛁
10. It's helpful to get an idea of how tomorrow's weather will compare to today, so I like to tell everyone if the temperature will feel much higher or lower tomorrow:
I am glad tomorrow will be here soon 😌 The forecast is partly cloudy throughout the day with a high of 53°F that will feel about the same temperature as today.— Cityblimp (@cityblimp) December 3, 2018
11. Sometimes I draw a picture of the city before bed 😁
