A quick sketch of an app idea, designed for people to share neighborhood guides with friends.

Overview

The app is centered both around the user's location and a social graph. It leverages people's love for their neighborhoods and willingness to share their favorite places with friends. Specific uses could be for people biking through the city who find themselves in a friend’s neighborhood or for people who are visiting the city and would like to know what to do while their friends are at work.

Concept

We often found ourselves biking or walking through friend's neighborhoods in New York City, looking at Yelp for top recommendations of restaurants and bars. Our favorite places in the city were ones that friends recommended to us, and we were often sharing our recommendations with friends for our neighborhood when we weren't able to hang out with them. This app looked to fill that gap.
