Extend New York... all the way up to santpoort ;-)
I thought this was funny. Extend New York, at ExtendNy.com where the grid of NY is used all over the world and you can find where you are located. In my case, I am at NY 68,024 st / 10,749 ave (note the comma's :-). The gris itself dates way back, see the plan of 1811.
And we all know that it should be the other way around: New York traces its roots to its 1624 founding as a trading post by colonists of the Dutch Republic, and was named New Amsterdam in 1626, since the Dutch bought the land for 60 guilders.
Ahh well. I like it better the way it is now. Just so we dont have rich words like "moederneuker" on our language.
