Important to whom?

The location of restrooms and cheap restaurants that are better than the burger chains is what I want to know.

I suspect important according to the local tourism office. The buildings in city with most historical research papers written about them and so on.

Yea, something like that. I remember that the block where the Japanese tourist office was located looked humongous on the map while the surrounding area was all squished up. I noticed as this was what they were looking for. Trying to estimate distances was just about impossible and all I could do was tell them to count crossings and tell them what stores and restaurants to look for at the corners where they had to turn.The more I think about it the more I question the sanity of whoever thought this was a good idea. And imagine the work they had to do squishing parts to make space for the "important" blocks, and still make it somewhat recognizable... Makes my head hurt...
