New York Stories on Google Maps

Mr Beller's Neighborhood

Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood is a local 'magazine with a map' in and about New York City. The magazine publishes reports, personal essays, urban sketches or any piece of writing that might illuminate a corner of life in the Big Apple and, thanks to Google Maps, you can browse the magazine by location.

The Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood map uses clustered map markers to show you the location of stories, reports and essays published on the site. You can pan the map and zoom in on any location to find contributions from local neighborhood's in New York. Alternatively, you can use the drop-down menu to zoom in quickly on a particular area.

If you click on any of the map markers you can read the story's headline, a brief snippet and the story's tags. There is of course also a link to read the article in full.
