For someone who likes maps anyway, and who also enjoys gentle satirical fun poking at the expense of a particularly humourless section of the American middle class, this map of New Jersey is a delight. Have a look at the above – what’s not to like?
Joe Steinfeld is a 22 year old New Jerseyian (if that’s the right term) who normally works in the Department of Environmental Protection. For his own amusement, and that of his friends he made up this sociological map of his state – and the thing went viral. Thousands of downloads and much sniggering.
Lovely wonderful. I understand that his bosses may have given him a smack on the wrists, but should he ever get bored where he is surely Joe has a future doing the same exercise for the remaining 49 states?
Come on Joe a book for next Christmas?
