The always surprising and refreshing Abstract City blog at New York Times Online, which regularly features visual pearls like New York in Lego and Subway Map Bathroom Tiling, has just posted a nice collection of graphical depictions [] that mimic the visual style of Google Maps. However, where I first assumed they were real outtakes or crops without any major alterations, some, if not all, seem to be newly created. On each image, the captions have been changed so they are interpreted as information graphics instead of geographical maps.
