What if Urban Dictionary made maps?

Mapping student at the University of Chicago, Sasha Trubetskoy, has asked the question of what would a map look like if it was generated form Urban Dictionary entries? How would the slang and the stereotypes look when they are visualized?

The maps below are illustrations of the San Francisco Bay Area and Long Island, NY. The Long Island map defines areas of McMansions, potheads, the Italian mob, and rich people, to name a few. “I noticed right away how much less negative the entries were when compared with Long Island”, said Trubetskoy. But even in the Bay Area, we see descriptions such as the “armpit of Napa” and “ghetto wannabes”.
