    Md, I'm sorry your state is so diseased. But is there a metropolitan area that isn't a confusing mess of municipalities?
    As for Texas, while it doesn't literally have townships, I suppose its map wouldn't look much different from a township map, because so many counties are so small and so many towns are so big.

    Note to everyone who posted here this week: this project never actually got started, and the maps posted here were created by other people and dumped here after some minor touches.

    Boston's suburbs aren't too bad.

    It was, but I recently returned to this and polished up my northeastern map.

    Still a lot of work to do in Northern New York and New England. At this point I'll leave fixing Pennsylvania to whoever intends to use this map first.

    Edit: Most of the map has now been taken care of, except for central and southern PA.

    Here's a new version, with cleaner PA borders and insets copied from @Chicxulub's county-BAM (which is at its original scale- this map is huge) at the top.

    The colors for the parties are flipped, which caused me to nearly choke on my tongue when I thought that Trump overwhelmingly won Manhattan.

    Incidentally, I am noticing that the towns in New Jersey that went for Clinton are almost all along I-95 and the Atlantic City Expressway. That’s really fascinating to me.

    It's the uselectionatlas.com color scheme (i.e. blue = GOP, red = democrats)

    So many squares...

    You Americans live in squares. You are square people, with square minds, who live square lives.





    Squares.

    Most of the squarish regions are sparsely populated, with the exception of Western New York, where most of the village and town centers happen to neatly fall near the middle of the squares.

    In the midwest, the square townships get way worse but have either been abandoned or are being phased out as the seat of municipal government in favor of county or consolidated municipal governments.

    It’s probably better than living in doughnuts.

    You must first understand the problem:

    Boroughitis began at the beginning of the last century when wealthier parts of towns began seceding and creating their own school districts in order to avoid “subsidizing” the rest of the town and their districts. Generally, these enclaves are either still wealthier than their surrounding towns, or the roles have been reversed and the larger town doesn’t want to annex a poorer community. Of course it would be easier and cheaper overall to share services rather than operating separate town councils/police departments/fire departments/school districts, but someone will be paying more in their taxes than they are now. Hence the political opposition.

    Governor Christie did attempt to force some consolidation, but he pretty much was beholden to the same political bosses/forces that the rest of the state is held to, so nothing really came of it. I suspect Governor Murphy wants to tackle it too, but I doubt he will.
