DNAInfo's Interactive Map Seeks to Definitively Establish Neighborhood Boundaries

We all know the neighborhood boundaries will ebb and flow as the neighborhood's residents shift and change.

Our friends at DNAinfo have created an amazing tool to help understand how this process happens, what causes it, and how it is partially defined by how long a resident has lived in a certain neighborhood.

Few things get New Yorkers riled up like a debate about where one neighborhood ends and the next begins. The city doesn't even have official boundaries. So we're asking you to settle it once and for all: Draw where you think your neighborhood's outlines are, then compare your boundaries to others drawn by your neighbors.

Draw your own boundaries above, or visit the full article to learn more.
