This map is part of a series depicting the 40 largest cities in the United States (as ranked by CBSA). This series will run through the month of July.

Great birdseye of Boston, Massachusetts [gmap], featuring a coloration (“slate” on “cream” ?) that I see frequently and always like. Comes up often enough thtat there must be a reason behind it. Any printmakers out there want to educate me?

I like this map quite a bit.
