All:

I don't have the technological savvy to create a map, but I'd love to play on a Manhattan-specific map. I see a NYC map, but I'm looking for a map that has much more detail. The neighborhoods of Manhattan are not always well defined, but the following three links has a mish-mash of defined neighborhoods.

Would someone have an interest in creating a map? Very much willing to sponsor someone's membership for it, though I also recognize there are artists who enjoy this pro bono.

Anyway, thanks for reading!

Here's a pdf file with just the neighborhood names and streets: http://www.nyc.com/visitor_guide/pdf/manhattan.pdf


Anyway, I think that a map with the blocks of NYC would be fun. Unfortunately there's most likely way too many blocks to fit in a single map. Maybe for the bonuses, there can be neighborhood bonuses and bonuses for having all of the blocks along a major street.

Thanks for the link, bwog. I had also thought about not only blocks, but subway stops that link underground, too. In my head I have such huge plans, but technology and time evade me!

Bowg showed you a good map, but you can not make a map with more than 3,200 territories

I don't think there're over 3200 blocks in Manhattan, maybe roughly a thousand.

A block-by-block would be an amazing map. Definitely tough to create, though!
