New York Neighborhoods Across the World
In an article entitled New York Elsewhere The Morning News makes a pretty good attempt to insult everybody in the world.
Using a series of embedded Google Maps The Morning News compares neighborhoods in cities across the the US (and a few other cities worldwide) with neighborhoods in New York. The purpose of the article is to inform fleeing New Yorkers which neighborhoods they should move to in other cities.
So, for example, the embedded map of San Francisco compares Treasure Island to Roosevelt Island, NoPa to Prospect Heights and San Anselmo to Nyack. Accompanying each map is a brief witty description of the mapped neighborhoods explaining their similarities to neighborhoods in New York.
