MyBlockNYC

MyBlockNYC is an innovative mapping project unlike anything ever done before. On a lofty scale, the goal of the website is to literally map out every block, street corner and alleyway in one of the world’s greatest cities through the use of user-generated video content. A modern cartographer’s dream, the website’s map is constantly growing and changing – an organic testament to the constant activity buzzing about the city. As an interactive video project, MyBlockNYC is open to anyone who wants to upload something they find interesting on their block as well as available to viewers from around the world.  They are even working with the NYC Department of Education and New York City public and private schools to offer students the resources, guidance and tools to create short documentary videos all over the city to add to the map.  Pretty excellent!
