Rikers Island: It’s like Alcatraz but REAL.
In the battle for cultural dominance between America’s coastal elite, two cities reign supreme: San Francisco and New York. Both have walkable streets, cultural zest, and rich (really, really rich) residents. There, the similarities might end–San Francisco is California chill and Free Love; New York is the City That Never Sleeps. Or do they? The whimsical mapmakers at Urbane–whose specialty is translating unfamiliar cartography into easy-to-understand, cheeky guides like “California According to San Francisco Giants Fans”–have created a San Franciscan’s guide to the Big Apple, complete with neighborhood references to make the overwhelming onslaught of New York City destinations more familiar to a Bay Area audience.
