A gamer known as Asterion built this unreleased replica of New York City in PC game CitiesXL. Those familiar with the city beyond Times Square should note landmarks such as the Lower East Side Projects, Columbus Circle, and Ground Zero.

This map was first revealed in early July. It's still a work in progress even now as forum posters have given suggestions that have been implemented into new versions of the virtual city. If you'd like to follow the city's progress, the latest forum thread can be found on the Simtropolis forums.
