Check out Harold Cooper’s ExtendNY map application to find out what your NYC address is – even if you live in Topeka, KS or Vladivostok, Russia. More on the project from an article in yesterday’s Huffington Post:
Earlier this summer we marked the 200th anniversary of Manhattan’s grid plan, that easy-to-navigate layout of streets and avenues that gives us Manhattanhenge, drives Speed Levitch crazy, and might just be based off some ancient urban planning.
In celebration of that anniversary, Harold Cooper … has made this incredible interactive map that extends New York’s grid system to every single place on planet earth. San Francisco? Just walk West to 15,957th Avenue. London? Easy! Just take a stroll East to 10,896th Avenue on 63,708 Street.
The map allows you to scroll across the world, zooming in on different places to see where a walk way way East on 66,228th Street will take you (see photo below).
