These maps come from a Business Insider-Survey Monkey collaboration which they called: “26 Maps that Show How New Yorkers Really Feel About Each Other.” Since they only asked 414 people though, perhaps it is more aptly called “How 414 New Yorkers Respond to Online Surveys.”  It’s a series of quite inaccurate maps that quite accurately display the strange mythologies and reputations that come to surround different neighborhoods.
