The Errant Isle of Manhattan

A post in Gothamist features a, "Map of the Day."
Today's map comes from Radical Cartography, source of the popular subway comparisons from a couple of days back. In this map, entitled "The Errant Isle of Manhattan", Bill has superimposed the map of Manhattan into other geographies, including Chicago (seen above), the Bay Area, and Philadelphia. It's fun to check out the sense of scale-- our little island is pretty small compared to some of these other cities.
I especially like the one with Manhattan sitting in San Francisco Bay, which I reproduced at left. "Radical Cartography"? Wish I'd thought of that name.
