Neighborhood Maps

map2.jpgStrange Maps, a wholly interesting blog about, appropriately enough, strange maps, has two posts showing two different neighborhood maps of Manhattan. It’s interesting how different they are and how some areas are independent on one, but lumped into a different neighborhood in the other.

I’m going to toss a third map into the mix, the New York City Department of City Planning’s Community District Map. While not as pretty to look at as the others, it encompasses all of NYC, and if you drill down deep enough through the web site’s awkward navigation, you can find a 20+ page PDF about each district that includes all sorts of information collected through the census, as well as public facilities and programs. My district, for example, is 55.3% female, which gives me hope.

    Those are cool! It is weird how different the boundaries are… Here is the one that appears in the taxis all around the city…

    As for the girl/guy ratio, you should try out Washington DC.
