Nearly every Phoenix neighborhood has its stereotypes. There are the safe but boring cookie-cutter breeder colonies, the historic neighborhoods we wish we could live in, the up-and-coming 'hoods trying to shed their ramshackle images, and the areas known as the Williamsburg and Bushwick of Phoenix.

But a new map is taking these unspoken identities a step further with an unfiltered, unapologetic map of metro Phoenix.

The map was created by Arizona native Justin Dougherty and submitted to the controversial Tumblr, Judgmental Maps. The Valley map, which went up Thursday, March 6, already gotten has a fair amount of shares on social media, with reactions ranging everywhere from laughter to, well, not.

A wide range of comments posted below Dougherty's Judgmental Map of Phoenix.

That's not surprising, since the map labels everything from the "Mormons" and "dead people" in Mesa to "wealthy drug addicts" and "rich Republicans" in Scottsdale to "Tent City Patrons" of South Phoenix, and "Injuns" in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

So I'm from 'wealthy drug addicts" and while I'm not challenging the accuracy of it, I wasn't aware that is our reputation and I'm kind of confused how to to came to be well-known.

Lame. I'd love to see this girl come up with any original idea. Plus the map is super cluttered. (From a layout stand point) But yes all in all still a little bit funny. And that's coming from a "injun". Step ur writing game up "white she devil".

I know how journalism is but you guys need to come up with some better stuff instead of trying to fill up the pages with "stuff".

No. Traffic cameras are illegal. And mexico isn't little it's the whole map. There's no junkie part in sunnyslope, and no abortion hut in Scottsdale.
