The New York Times had an article this morning about the frequent and often contentious battles for Foursquare mayorships. Except the people profiled in the article were locked in battles to be mayor of like....a bridge. And, random places in offices. How fierce is the competition for actual cool places?-
Using the handy dandy website, When Will I Be Mayor, we calculated just how many check-ins it takes to be mayor of some of the city's most popular locales.
So there you go! Virtually impossible to become mayor of the ACE unless you like, move in, and not surprisingly, relatively easy to steal the mayorship at Elaine's.
(And, FYI, it would take about 19 checkins at Guest of a Guest to steal the mayorship from Sarah Kunst, but don't even try it.)

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
