Get Lost

November 14th, 2014 | Michelle | 0 Comments


Ever meander around a big city and then realize you aren’t actually meandering, you’re in a panicked frenzy because you’re: straight. up. lost. ? Yeah well, in certain metropolises, it’s not actually your fault.

Data-artist Steve Von Worley documented 10 cities showing, colorfully, how logical or illogical their layouts were. What’s the deal? Well where thing go bleary.. shit got crazy. Or there’s say a mountain or river there. Where you see a perfect grid? You can count on potentially being able to make your way from Spot A to Spot B with minimal swearing.

Who were the lucky 10?
San Francisco
NYC
Paris
Chicago
London
Boston
Washington DC
Berlin
LA
Tokyo

Who won? I mean not trying to play hometown favorites (obviously, as I live in Chicago but don’t like it a whole ton), but if you’re ocd and like things straight… Below are the results for the Windy City, Berlin, New York City, Washington D.C. & London.
