Giants of Blackmoor: New York-Newark MSA after the Fall
Blackmoor in the 212
Tired of the prattling of Islanders fans, the good citizens of Queens took a saw and--holding on to the Throgs Neck for balance--lopped off the rest of Long Island at the Cross Island Pkwy. Meanwhile to the west, New Jersey sated its lust for Lady Liberty by lunging to the east and having its way with her and her little brother Ellis; kicking Staten Island to the side in the process. Whether Jerseyites wanted the lost souls of Long Island or not is open to debate, but Nassau County drifted across the Raritan Bay, latching onto Sandy Hook just in time to avoid falling off the continental shelf. The Hamptons remain unmoved off the map to the right and are still accessible from the City via Water-Jitney.
