City Planning GIS Map

This is a pretty cool tool - a wealth of information to be visualized citywide.

As always I'm struck by how much parts of NJ fit with NYC - but due to political boundaries, we don't do regional planning as well as we should.  The Port Authority is a decent model (never mind that 90 years on it's founding purpose of a Cross-Harbor Freight Tunnel remains a dream).  Perhaps down the road we will see more coordination between the states, or even a shuffling of portfolios among authorities.

All right, I've now wandered way off topic.  Go check out that map.
