Everybody loves travelling. The thrill of touching down in a new destination is hard to compare to anything. You finally get out of your regular environment and experience something new. You see things like you've never seen before, people you've never met before and generally make memories that might last you a lifetime. There is a downside, though. After visiting anything and everything that piques your interest, you eventually tire. You just want to sit down, lounge out to some good music, maybe get a decent bagel. The problem is, you have no idea where to do that. So you open up Foursquare or Yelp to browse through places and their reviews, only to come out perplexed. How could you be sure you could trust the reviews of random users throughout the world? How could you be sure you have similar tastes and interests? Enter On the Grid, the curated city guide created by Hyperakt

On the Grid was built upon the inspiration the Hyperakt team came upon moving to Gowanus, an up-and-coming post-industrial neighborhood of New York City. Being a decidedly under-the-radar area, Gowanus is home to lots of amazing places, unbeknownst to the masses. The Hyperakt team, led by Deroy Peraza started collecting their favorite places to create a selection of the very best the neighborhood has to offer. It quickly dawned on them that this project could be easily scaled to the whole city, or even multiple cities. So they got in touch with similarly discerning design studios around the city, and asked them to curate their own neighborhood. Thus, the South Street Seaport locations were curated by Wasabi Rabbit, East Village was done up by OCD, and Barrel got Little Italy and Nolita. With each studio possessing a unique view, the selections are rather diverse with only one thing unifying them, an eye for detail and a sophisticated taste.

Using On the Grid, you have two view options, a grid-based layout with attractive photos and a map layout that comes in handy when you're trying to search for a spot nearby. There are also categories to filter the results, with gastronomy taking up 4 of the existing 9 categories, the rest being reserved for non-food related endeavours. Navigating the site is easy as can be, and the design is superb, as you would expect from a collaboration of several creative studios.

The project launched just over a month ago, and new neighborhoods are added every week, with Los Angeles coming in July. The Hyperakt team gets numerous offers daily to extend the reach beyond NYC or the USA. While they are busy working on present content and other projects, we are sure On the Grid will extend beyond its current boundaries, bringing curated selections to a larger group of people. Until then, read away on Yelp, and hope you get lucky.
