2023’s Google Year in Search is out, and its local search function provides an interesting peek into our city’s queries. Take a look at what we were searching most this year (plus, our answers to your searches — we may not be Google, but we know a thing or two about where to find pre-loved items and trinkets).

Unique local searches

  • Top trending TV show | “The Last of Us” on Max
  • Top trending tour | Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour
