Launches & Releases: Neighborhood Consciousness Maps!

New, 3 comments

Here we have a spatial representation of the thoughts, ideas, and dreams circulating around the Upper West Side and its nearby neighborhoods as rendered by Pastiche. It's a software program brought to our attention by the good folks at NBC New York that scans the blogosphere and dynamically maps words deemed related to a particular neighborhoods to that space in a crazy 3-D visual space. Instant headtrip! Though we know you'll never download it, trust us, it's pretty cool—though one might have hoped for a better showing for classic Curbed Upper West Side phrases like "15 Central Park West," "Apthorp," and "somnolent."
