Do you remember this map?
If you lived in lower manhattan you probably can – unless you also partook in a 5-day booze induced bender because there was NOTHING else to do in Lower Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy – in that case you do not remember anything.
So – to be factual this is the heat map that foursquare published during Hurricane Sandy.
Yes – foursquare was very helpful in demonstrating how this disaster effected people in the city very differently. While midtown and upper Manhattan enjoyed checking-in on foursquare to their local Starbucks the rest of Manhattan was trying to find a toilet that could flush (also at their local Starbucks)…oh yeah and we couldn’t check-in anywhere because our cellphones were dead.
So why are we posting this outdated rant? Because it is still happening today – well not on such a horrible scale but check out this map (no thanks to foursquare)….
See the similarities? I do! The only place that people are able to store luggage is north of 34th street…
If you or your guests are still lugging their bags uptown for storage – stop!
I mean really!? We are here! Conveniently located on the Lower East Side – 5 minute walk to the J train (for people coming and going to JFK) and right by the Williamsburg Bridge for the rest of us slackers that take cabs or Uber.
