Reader Mail: Misleading Maps
Back in August, I had a post about the Upper Grand website – and how their “map” of Hoboken – and the location of the property they’re promoting was vastly inaccurate, making it appear as if the buildings were a stone’s throw away from the Hudson River.
(Yet another) misleading developer map
“Hope you are enjoying the cold weather. I know we had a discussion on 411 about the misleading map which showed ‘Upper Grand’s’ 800 Madison as a few blocks from the river. I found another misleading example on gardenstreetlofts.com.
If you go there, go to Neighborhood –> Map, it shows the ‘northern half’ of Hoboken, showing an icon for the Path station at… 7th and Hudson! To their credit they have a small arrow indicating that it’s further down that this, but anyone who hasn’t been to Hoboken or been there only a few times would totally fall for this. Desperate? I think so!
Yea and on this note if you hurry you can take advantage of their limited time preconstruction prices!
Keep up the good work!”
