Localnext is a Google Maps mashup that shows New York City events. The site homepage is a simple search bar that allows you to select the New York district you wish to search and whether you are looking for events today or at the weekend.
The results of a search are then displayed on a Google Map. Different types of events are shown with different map markers. The categories of events include shopping, arts, fairs & festivals, kids & family, real estate, social networking, shows & performing arts, sports & outdoors, nightlife and other.
You can also filter the events on the map by category, time and location. The filter tools can be accessed via the footer below the map.
