Seattle man Jeffrey Linn has set out to answer the question: if one third of the world's ice sheets melted and sea levels rose 100 feet, which parts of major cities would end up underwater? The answer, when it comes to New York City, is: most of them. The horror of such a scenario is mitigated somewhat by the fact that it's still a couple thousand years away, and also by Linn's funny, irreverent renaming of NYC neighborhoods (CUNY Island, Middrown, Port Greene, and Little Venice, to name few). Then again—still pretty horrifying.
Linn also made maps for Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco.
