Local Cartographer Creates “Islands of San Francisco” Map

Burrito Justice, the uppity chief spokesperson for the uppity La Lenguans, has created a pleasing new map of San Francisco that brings linear order to our nonlinear city and geographic clarity to anyone who simply has a hard time keeping track of which neighborhood is which:

After at least 300 interations, behold a poster of my San Francisco map — if neighborhoods were islands, and streets canals.

Order on Zazzle — 23″ x 23″ for $25, 15″ x 15″ for $16. 11″ x 11″ for $11.

Still time to ship for Christmas! (Or start a tradition of giving maps in the New Year!)

Here’s a close-up of the most attractive and interesting part, Bernal Heights:

Note also that the map indicates La Lengua has chosen to align itself as a contiguous vassal of The Mission, when in fact it is a contiguous vassal of Bernalwood. Must be some sort of mistake.

    Burrito Justice rocks. But don’t get mad at me for pointing out the obvious.

    It seems to me that the map was created prior to La Lengua-Bernalwood diplomatic talks, so that may explain your issue?

    LIMINAL! LIMINAL!

    Working on the best way to draw areas of cartographic interest. Holly Park is one example, considering South Park. Working on the best way to handle treaty-based Venn diagrams such as La Lengua.

  3. san francisco neighborhood maps excite me. this is the best one i’ve seen yet.

    i live in the theater district (west side of union square). it may not be an official neighborhood since you’ve lumped it into the tendernob. twitter calls it downtown. yelp calls it union square. it’s all hotels and theaters.

    anywho, LOVE it!
