Manhattan on Vacation

What if the island of Manhattan left New York City to visit other cities? Where would it go and what would it look like?

Inspired by Bill Rankin’s Radical Cartography – The Errant Isle of Manhattan and kottke.org’s Manhattan Elsewhere projects, “Manhattan on Vacation” takes the island of Manhattan to San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Hawaii.
