    Copycat ;P Yours will probably beat the heck out of mine though.

    N.B. I'm just kidding about the copycat thing, BTW...how many ways are there to draw New York?

    ;-)

    It's really hard to find a good base map with the right angle.
    I'm not completely sure where this will go.

    I hear you. I'm not sure where mine's going either...or rather how I'm going to find the time to get it there. I am beginning to consider zooming in a bit.

    If you happen to have Sim City 4, I bet you can download people's custom New York maps and take a screenshot of various sections. That has almost the correct angle, I think.

    I did think about that. I think it comes with NYC (and SF and some others) but I can't recall for sure.

    Why not just go in Google Maps and get the angle and elevation right from there?

    I wasn't aware that Google map can do this.

    I know Google Earth can. Not sure about the map but it might be able to as well.
