I'm from the UK and nothing has the layout of New york

Actually Glasgow does sorta. They film quite a few American films there as the street layout is kinda similar to New York and stuff.

You could have gone somewhere better for us Brits to be represented. Did you vomit at their accent?
User avatar #165 to #34 - cohz ONLINE (02/20/2013) [-]
I did laugh alot..
And yes i know, it was mostly because it was a school trip, and my teachers thought it had a good history, and because my math teacher is the biggest fan of Liverpools football team :p

The older the city the weirder the map since no one bothered trying to make it look uniform back in the day.

New York City's birthday is 1625 and Boston's is 1630.
#74 to #72 - Rascal (02/20/2013) [-]
The roads in Boston are much older than that though. They used to be walking paths/animal paths.

Sorry to hear that, has all gone well since then?
User avatar #163 to #162 - ryukyukids (02/20/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm fine lol and to be honest it wasn't that bad at all, people still managed to party and **** .
#146 - zerodate (02/20/2013) [-]
This is due to the change in directors over the years.
The Grid pattern like in New York City is Jeffersonian I believe its called, based on having square units making it easily navigable.
The almost random setup like Boston is based off and idea of having roads lead directly to key destinations thus making transit quicker but the problem is that unless you know what your doing your more ****** than nymphomaniac in a high school.

Consider the following: Boston was incorporated in 1822, whilst New York was incorporated in 1898. This means that New York was more or less established during the second industrial revolution and Boston was only during the first
User avatar #52 to #13 - ningyoaijin (02/20/2013) [-]
...There were multiple industrial revolutions? **** man, no wonder I failed History.

Do you like parks? Have some parks. Maybe more parks. Parks around your city. You have to drive past parks. PARKS

Could someone please explain this?
#92 to #30 - GRBanimefreak **User deleted account** (02/20/2013) [-]
Im from the area so I know this conversation realy well.

Boston is known for have a very confusing lay out. Its roadways are literaly meant for foot travel and horses. Some of the roads are so narrow that their is barely enough room for two cars to go in oposite directions. Its is confusing, complicated, disorganized to evry person who is not familiar with it, and agravating to evryone know matter how well you know it.

New York is set up in a very neat organized grid pattern, with all of the roads equal distances apart intersecting at right angles, and very well controlled intersections. Their is only one road that breaks up the pattern and that is Broadway ( i beleive, may be wrong) which is descended from the original main foot path used by the natives before the colonists came.

Boston is built like London: ******* streets going wherever and with no order.

Perfect pentagram... Except it isn't.
User avatar #50 to #49 - gmarrox (02/20/2013) [-]
No, but it was intentionally designed as one.
User avatar #51 to #50 - lordlolland (02/20/2013) [-]
If anybody had the power to intentionally make a pentagram with the roads of a nation's capital, then you would think they also had the power to have it done right.
User avatar #53 to #51 - gmarrox (02/20/2013) [-]
You would think that as time goes on, and cities develop, maybe the roads would change. Look it up. The free masons.
#55 to #53 - lordlolland (02/20/2013) [-]
Except it was never a complete pentagram, not even when it was made.
Look it up.
Conspiracy nut.
User avatar #58 to #55 - gmarrox (02/20/2013) [-]
A) How am I a conspiracy nut?
B) How does it being unfinished discredit the fact that it was intended to look like a pentagram?
C) It's not a secret to anyone that the designs were intentionally. There is documentation somewhere, and on a day I have more free time, I'll attempt to find it.

New york is built after a plan that the goverment made, most cities outside of America is rater built after how the town naturally developed.
#47 to #37 - Rascal (02/20/2013) [-]
New York's layout is based heavily apon Glasgow City in Scotland.

User avatar #22 - auraguardian (02/19/2013) [-]
maybe its because boston started as a village and expanded like most old towns/ cities, like english towns, and that new york was planned as a city from the start so they could plan roads out.

new york was built with intentions of it becoming a massive city. boston was just a town that kept getting bits added to it.
