Where Are Your Neighborhood’s Boundaries? Here’s How Staten Islanders Answered

by | Sep 29, 2015 | Life This Way on Bay


Last month, we asked if you knew what the boundaries for your neighborhoods were, pointing out that there are no official ones set by the city. We learned that when a DNAinfo.com article explained why there’s so much confusion when it comes to exactly where one neighborhood ends and another begins. The DNAinfo post offered users the opportunity to highlight the boundaries of the neighborhood that they live in on Google Maps, in order to see if there was any kind of consensus among residents. It seems that this is not the case.

Today, DNAinfo followed up on that interactive post, with a new one. Today’s post features shaded maps of various New York City neighborhoods, highlighting the different interpretations of borders for each neighborhood. As you can see above, there was some serious disagreement as to where Stapleton begins and ends. This happened across the board.
