Over on Pinterest we caught sight of this cool mapping site via Queens Mamas. Stamen makes it easy for anyone to create a map with different textures – Toner, Terrain, Watercolor, Burning Map, and Trees, Cabs & Crime (only available in SF right now). We decided to check out Queens (of course!) with the various options. First is Toner (“These high-contrast B+W (black and white) maps are featured in our Dotspotting project. They are perfect for data mashups and exploring river meanders and coastal zones.”):

RESOBOX (GMAP) is a Japanese art gallery and cultural center located one block from the Queensboro Plaza station. Run by Fumio Tashiro and Takashi Ikezawa, the space – which takes its name from the words “resonate” and “box” – showcases Japanese-inspired art, hosts classes, and serves beverages and desserts in its cafe.
