Nice but coverage still very limited!
I like the format, and the information on each of the selected landmarks seems quite professional. So, Thank you for putting this guide together. However, as someone living west of Bway and above 96th St., I was so disappointed that the only part of the West Side you have chosen th cover is all east of Bway and south of 81st St. How long will it before you get to our neighborhood and is there a way to have your readers help you get there faster? I also wish you had a "mode" which provided historical background on each of the other many "infill" buildings along the street because it is these lesser-known buildings that give the streets their character.
