102, mostly in the Bronx, Manhattan and Queeens.

This is fun but tough. The neighborhood names change so often and everyones map is a little different.

I felt the same way.It would have been better if you had to press onto a neighborhood and enter the right name instead of just rattling off random names as fast as possible. That would have been a real test.

Accessible, easy time-waster. I love it.

Not sure if anyone else noticed little quirks like this, but the game's map doesn't include Bedford Park in the Bronx (it conflates it with Fordham, if I remember correctly). Probably a lot of blurry lines like that. Was Bedford Park previously named something different or is this a glaring error?

This map includes Bedford Park within Norwood.

Many glaring errors. It also does not include my neighborhood,Pelham Parkway.I lost time at the very beginning when it wouldn't accept my own neighborhood. Hard to tell whose NYC neighborhood map they used but it wasn't the official NYC neighborhood map.

Yeah! I typed "Pelham Parkway" three times in disbelief.

When it rejected Hamilton Heights I wondered if it meant that the quiz considers HH a new "real estate neighbourhood" or something.

No Turtle Bay or Clinton either,among many others. Maybe they should have more accurately labeled it "guess which neighborhoods are missing from our neighborhood map ."
