ExtendNY

The Manhattan grid extended to every point on earth.

  1. DNA Lounge is between 15,954th Avenue and 15,955th Avenue on 14,468th Street.
  2. A singularity occurs in Uzbekistan.
  3. Another in R'lyeh.

So make of that what you will.

    Shhh! Or the idiots will use that idea for the next terrible US Torchwood series.

    As opposed to the existing coordinate system, where there's a singularity at the north pole and a singularity at the south pole?

      No, it's nothing like that at all, because it's funny.

      • Lloyd says:

        A full Manhattan grid leads to a torus, which is double-wrapped onto a sphere to produce a spindle torus - avoiding singularities.

          There are still singularities at the poles (or wherever). You know you can't comb a hairy ball.

    I'm sort of upset that they didn't include (an idealized) Houston as the equator and start numbering again south of it. Similarly, the grid East of 1st Ave should be in letters! There's something beautiful about Saint Paul's in London being on 63,745 between AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAU and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAV.
