Treasure Chest is a blog-style website that highlights the "hidden gems" in NYC. We have located some of the best places in all five boroughs and displayed them on the website. You can check out our map and see their locations, and we have attached their websites if you want more information.
We wanted to help New Yorkers as well as tourists experience NYC. There are many tourist attractions and popular food places all over NYC, and we want to help them out by providing them with other businesses and attractions that they can visit.
Our website was made by all of our teammates researching for places throughout the 5 boroughs. We took all of the locations and added them to our website for easy access. We have also included a map so people can see the location of these places.
In our website, the most difficult issue was attaching a map. We had a lot of trouble creating a map that contained many markers as well as information windows that appears when the marker is clicked on. To overcome this issue, we had a lot of help from out teachers and TAs. We also spent a lot of time researching on Google how to solve the issue. Google has a wonderful Google Maps website that was very helpful.
