Fascinating List of Intersections

Since it’s too hot to think of anything interesting, I’ll post a list of raw data. Below is the ever-expanding list of 2008 Toynbee Tiles.

What the tiler may have lacked in quality, he more than made up for in quantity. The current list stands at 40, with most recent sightings on Girard, Allegheny and Passyunk Avenues. That means that neighborhoods in deep north, deep south and everything in-between here in Philly has been tiled.

Except for a couple thinner strips on Girard and the one on the north end of City Hall all the ‘08 tiles look like this:

Add Bridge and Frankford (or
Bustleton and Frankford, since it’s ambiguous there) to your list. I just noticed that one earlier today, stepping off of the southwest corner to cross Frankford.
