Just a quick question, does a sprint map exist?

Should be easy to make one, but not yet.

That's true.

What (where?) is Stuy Town?

Manhattan, New York City. It is a massive complex of apartments built starting in the 1940s, created on land that had been occupied by gas works when gas works were a thing.
j-man is correct. I think starting with information already on Open Street Map it would be easy to make not one but two sprint maps of 'Stuy Town'.

Stuyvesant Town in also immediately across the street from the original location of Stuyvesant High School. I went to school at that location in the mid-1960's. Boris G and Misha Lipatov attended Stuyvesant later, when it had moved to its current location near the Hudson. The school has many, many considerably more famous graduates than we three orienteers.

That is hard to believe, Dennis.

Perhaps ;-)

But true nevertheless.

Stuy alum Eric Lander is Biden's top science advisor!

My daughter lives across the street from the current location.
