Full map below

You may have seen Urbane's San Francisco map, in which areas of the city are named by what they are known for instead of their actual name (for example, the Sunset district was translated into, "Well, the cab rejected me again, claiming I live too far from everything else.").

Urbane has recently released their latest map for the "Yay Area," renaming every city from Novato to Los Gatos with what they've observed in that particular area. We're definitely only going to refer to the East Bay Hills as "Hills of Income Separation" from now on.

"Shooting Gallery & Sideshow" area is incorrectly named "Very Poor Media Coverage" on the map.

No, but it should be called the San Jose Bay Area. San Jose is the largest city in this area by square miles and population and the bay should be renamed the San Jose Bay.

So I'm Santa Cruz (Aptos actually) and consider myself Bay Area but I don't think my neighors do. It seems to be more of a mind set that anything else

I better go check up, because I live in "Bathtubs full of money" and could use a vacation!

The only people that can say weather it is accurate or not are the people that have lived there. I lived there for 55 years. Yes it is accurate.

Are these things supposed to get less tedious with repetition? Because it's not working.

Way too dense. Too much of a good thing. Nice concept though.
