Best maps of 2013
We are starting off the New Year with Wired Science’s Best Maps of 2013. Or, as they titled them, “The Most Amazing, Beautiful, and Viral Maps of the Year.” A great selection, and of the 15 maps they featured, 3 are about New York City. I found this one, NYC Henge, to be particularly interesting.
“Twice a year, the setting sun lines up with the street grid of New York City's Manhattan, creating an incredible show and a free-for-all for amateur photographers. The phenomenon is known as Manhattanhenge, but the map above, dubbed NYCHenge and made by Javier Santana shows when and where the show can be caught all across New York City, any day of the year.”
