Extending Manhattan street grid to everywhere on Earth


ExtendNY is a fun mapping exercise that extends Manhattan's street grid across the whole planet. It turns out our flat in London is around E10,874th Ave and 63,764th St.

  1. Does this mean that children that live in Manhattan get their Christmas gifts from an Uzbeki Santa Claus?  The northernmost of the two Manhattan Poles is  roughly 10 miles south of Shaytankuduk, Uzbekistan.

  2. Cue four dozen puzzle geocaches based on this in three.. two..

    Also, interesting that the “north pole” of this system is in rural Uzbekistan.

    Ugh, the upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper upper east east east east east east east east east east side. Jeez, why not just move to Brooklyn and be done with it?

  4. Hmmmm, I wonder if living near S 2218 St and 3,557 Avenue will finally get me some good Vietnamese food around here!?

  5. shouldn’t the avenue numbers just go up as you go further west? why have “E. ####th Ave.”?  Or if you really want to follow the lead of Aves. A,B, C, D, then you could keep going that way, but Ave. BBBRAE or whatever sounds lame.

  6. I’ve always thought about extending the London Underground zones to cover the world. I just like the idea of having a zone 60 travel card to the States.
