Thanks for posting! This is great.

It always bothers me how much power we give the state borderline ignoring the actual geography of a megalopolis like NYC. There are more than 20 million people living in this population cluster, regardless of political borders. The worst thing the British ever did was give New Jersey over to Berkeley and Carteret as a repayment for their loyalty to the crown in the English Civil War. ]

The competition this created between these two colonies, then between the states, has been incredibly counter productive. Its modern repercussion is the Port Authority of NY and NJ which is ridiculous.

Why split one of the greatest harbors in the world between 2 political entities? It just doesn't make sense.

I love this map because it puts geography above politics.


Do YOU wish you paid NYC City Income tax? Because I sure as hell don't.


It's a balance if you own. More income tax, less property tax. Definitely an advantage to rent outside of NYC, though.

Again, accurate.

(With apologies to parts of town omitted, but let's be real.)

Of course, it's from abroad. An American company would not ignore the iron curtain that separates New Jersey from NYC.
