BROOKLYN - From Bensonhurst to Bushwick, one Brooklyn restaurateur is helping define the neighborhoods that make up our borough for Google!

Matt Hyland, owner of Brooklyn Central restaurant in Park Slope, noticed some problems with Google maps so he started making corrections.

He points out new restaurants and ones that have closed down, defines neighborhood boundries, and deletes ones that don't exist. He submitted his suggestions to Google and now the company has named Hyland a "regional expert reviewer" to make sure the maps are accurate.
