Subway from Canal Street, NYC to Akihabara, Tokyo

Last October I posted about my shopping trip down Canal Street in New York City and recently Mathew from Nolebotic commented that Canal sounded like Akihabara in Tokyo. I had never thought of it like that and I think he is right. You can always find cool stuff in both places. The the question came up as th where to find the cool stuff. I checked, as I know he is in Tokyo, and sure enough he just published a map of Akihabara and the best places to find RC or Robot parts and supplies.

You can find that map here via Robo-Dreams

I like the map idea and I will follow this post up with a similar map of Canal Street. Any other hobby or specialty district related maps that you can think of would be great to link to as well. Post your ideas as comments here and lets make a list.
Now if we could just get a direct subway route from Canal Street, NYC to Akihabara, Tokyo. :)

Update: Here is the Google map I created, tell me what else to add.
