Well, in Boston, sometimes it takes a long time to get there. I found a great story on Boston.com that was adapted from the original Cartogrammar.com blog post titled: “You can’t get there from here“.

“…absurdly simple trips like driving across a street or around the corner can require a convoluted route and an intimate knowledge of the local streets.”

The Boston.com article identifies each of the trips. I know that I’ve personally driven the first one, and I think the last one.
