It might be easy to pick out Somerton or Holmesburg, but could you find Elmwood? What about McGuire?
Code for America and Philly-based Azavea compiled their data and app-making skills to create “Click that ‘hood!” The entertaining game challenges users to identify neighborhoods in their cities, and Philly’s map is one of them.
You’re not going to find every single neighborhood on there (you’ll notice a few Northeast neighborhoods aren’t on there), but the map is fairly accurate, and the game is a fun way to waste time. You’ve got two options: try to identify the 20 random neighborhoods the game generates, or see how long it takes you to find all 155 neighborhoods on the city map.
It took us 18 minutes and 26 seconds to get all 155. Think you can do better?
