New York, NY
Ah, I suck. I am a horrible blogger. But. I'd like to share with you my new favorite internet toy, Gothamist's News Map. It's a Google Maps crime blotter, that plots incidents around the city as they happen. And it's, like, totally awesome. It's like Law & Order, but on my computer, and without having to watch the whole show - I can just get scared that all these things are happening! It's kind of scary, though, realizing that people are getting shot, robbed, bitten, stabbed, crashed into, and falling into water and off of scaffolds all day long. It's enough to make you want to stay inside, except that there are fires, unstable buildings and gas leaks, too. I need to get a helmet.
