If the thought of what corporate brand best describes a specific neighborhood in Manhattan has come to mind, this may be the answer. British designer, James Campbell taylor presents “City In Chains”, a graphical interpretation of NYC neighbhood names disguised as chain brands . Examples would be Uniqlo to SOHO, Starbucks to Greenwich Village, Chelsea to JP Morgan Chase and so forth. Denizens of each neighborhood may not appreciate the side by side comparison. However, I gotta say there’s a fair share of CITI bikes in use around East Village.
