Okay, I did that. Any more suggestions?

I do not hang around there because there is nothing there to do, really...
Green. But, west of the Delaware Expressway from Bridesburg (Frankford Valley) should be yellow and the west side of Port Richmond, across Aramingo, should be red.
Frankford should be red. Fishtown and Bridesburg, green.

Maps like this should only be made by people who have a pretty intimate knowledge of the city. In my couple of years in Philadelphia I've made it a point to travel all over the city by bus, train, and foot, and feel like I have a pretty decent feel for most of the city. Even at that, I wouldn't attempt something like this, at least not to share with others. Not to be rude, but these maps largely don't even make any sense. Queen Village and Frankford are in the same category? Girard Estate and Kensington/Somerset are the same category?
I've opened up the map so people can edit it freely! -> https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...46211,0.104628

Because I honestly have never been to those places, and really don't want to have to go there.

Yeah i moved around the zones near the Temple RR station to better reflect the new development. Also Expanded Green Zone around Fairmont Ave. and Eastern State. East Passyunk Ave. is green too, near the ACME, and Genos and Pats but a little fuzzy on the details.

I tried Firefox and Google Chrome and it looks like a regular map, no color sections anywhere... zoomed in and zoomed out... am I doing something wrong?
