    But it does extend across the whole planet, except for downtown and all the unimportant bits.

    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.

  3. Great, another way for New Yorkers to feel like they’re the center of the universe.

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

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

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

    Which subway line runs to Beaverton, OR?

    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.

    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.
