Alestair Tse on Walking All of Manhattan

September 7, 2013

How well do you know your city? Your neighborhood? The patterns of our daily lives typically dictate what we see and experience in our local environments. We travel the same roads, go to the same shopping centers, see the same sights. What would happen if we made a conscious effort to experience the entirety of our community? Alastair Tse was a recent transplant to New York City and decided he would attempt to do just that by walking all of Manhattan. In this great update to his previous talk, filmed at the New York QS meetup group, Alastair explains his motivation and how he’s developed his own application to help him track every street he travels while walking. Make sure to check out his wonderful explanation of this project and method for exploring his data on his personal website.
