These judgemental maps aren't meant to be accurate. They generally represent a tongue in cheek, satirical look at the stereotypes of a given city.

Yes. They use 69 segments, all the same across US. All you need to know is the name of the segment assigned for your zipcode.
Example:
Tapestry Segment 1A: Top Tier (married people, single family house) is the same for every city. If you live in such segment, the description is identical for NY, Miami, LA, Boston, Detroit etc.
There is nothing unique for your city particular zip code.

The segments are listed here:

It is accurate.

That, plus the fact that it's not PC, is precisely why it's funny.
