|Pac-Tom Update: October 2008

Okay, we'll make this one quick. I spent a lot of time this summer training for races, which cut into this project to run every street. I still occasionally made some progress on that, and now that I'm back in town without any races coming up I'm on it full-time. Like I mentioned last time, the name of the game now is to finish up those scattered spots I've missed and eliminate neighborhoods one at a time, concentrating on the more distant ones first. Newly added to this list are all of the Oakland neighborhoods and Squirrel Hill South, which is the largest neighborhood in the city (by area), and really hilly. Phew! The finished neighborhoods are darkened in above and pink are individual marked-for-death roads. It certainly looks like I'm almost done, huh?
Total distance: 2208.5 miles.
Total time: 12 days, 15 hours, 15 minutes.
|A fine fine film for many occasions.|
|A question: Where did you get the data on what the exact boundaries for the various neighborhoods are? I suppose since you were able to make the map these must be set in stone somewhere, but I never really considered it - are they official municipal entities?|
|Yeah, the city does define the borders. You can see some maps here:
|The map is confusing: Point Breeze doesn't seem to have any pink segments in it, yet it's not darkened. This might just be because of the scale.
|very observant. Point Breeze is close to my house and not on the way to anything (because of various parks and geography) so it is the only neighborhood I haven't yet made a serious coverage effort in. Therefore it has no cleanup-todo list. It will probably be the last one I finish, aside from my home 'hood of Shadyside, which I am deliberately saving.|
