A dubious claim

October 13th, 2013

This chunk of median at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and 58th Street seems to believe it is located at the geographic center of NYC. The Department of City Planning, however, says that the city's geographic center actually lies about two and a half miles away, on Stockholm Street between Wyckoff Avenue and St. Nicholas Avenue in Bushwick.

    There’s actually no generally accepted definition of what constitutes a geographic center. Feel free to pick your own!
