Franklin Park: Mapped!

Do you like my rants about Franklin Park? Do you like maps? Well, then I’ve just put chocolate in your peanut butter because I’ve now added an interactive map that shows the locations in the Park of each of my posts! I whipped this up a few weeks ago but have been remiss in sharing it. Check it out below, and you can always link to it from the right sidebar.

One of the things that I hope will happen when I write about the Park is that people will go out and see these things for themselves. So this new feature shows where the Park sites are, and lets you find them on your own. Also, I made it with all the maps I have available for the Park over the years, from 1884 to modern Google satellite views. History nerds can watch as the Park evolves and changes, and they can also check my rants and ideas against the cartography.

I’ll update this map each time I add a post about the Park. Check back often!
