Keep in mind that this is a combination of my opinion and general perception, and that some people might have shaded certain areas different colors than the ones I chose.

I would like to do a Broward map in collaboration with compelled to reply, but since I anticipate that our criteria for what is "nice" and "desirable" will differ (i.e. I bet he would rate West Miramar a 5 and he would object to me rating Hollywood Hills as a 4), I would like to just leave the creation of the map to him. Besides, I don't even know Broward very well. So, compelled, if you are up to the challenge I would love to see it happen!
Great job,it proves that there are a lot more nice areas than this forum gives it credit.

You know this is really good. If you have the address, you can pin exactly where the house is. So, assuming these boundaries are fairly accurate, you could be borderline red, or pink, or dark green or ? and get a good idea of where you might want to focus more or less.

I still do have it. I never took your "collaborator" access away, so you can resume work on the Palm Beach County whenever you wish.

Your Mourningside is too big, you included bay point the two neighborhoods are not alike. You dont have a midtown its all upper east side. Upper East side I would say is above 44th street below that is midtown Miami.
Biscayne park is way too big.

Besides for that pretty cool and you did a good job.

A helpful suggestion...
Try to refine the best category( dark green ) with a subcategory,
preferably coloured white,
which will include the millionaire's "rows ","blocks",enclaves,gated communities.
The top of the top...

Yes great suggestion, they probably deserve their own color. You can' compare Coco Plum or Star Island with Pinecrest or the Baptist area. Any area with homes above 1.5 million should have their own category

Please give me exact (or at the very least approximate) boundaries. Midtown/Upper East Side is not an area I know very well, so I could use some input about it. Also, what are the (smaller) boundaries of Biscayne Park?
