Do Know Your Hoods?
How well do you know your San Diego geography? Do you know your Cherokee Point from your Burlingame? This Code for America project "Click that 'hood!" invites you to test your local neighborhood knowledge while the clock is ticking.

The map uses data pulled from SANDAG to identify the boundaries of each neighborhood, and some neighborhoods are definitely missing (Uptown, you've been dissed). I took the easy test, which asks you to identify only 20 of the possible 93 neighborhoods. I gave up after several minutes of searching for one specific neighborhood.

So for all my readers in the neighborhood of Birdland, rest assured I meant you no insult, but I just haven't the foggiest idea where you live in our beloved city. Send me a postcard, it sounds nice there.
