Talk about a way to keep retailers and store owners honest – WYNC (a NYC public radio station) has peformed a crowdsourcing experiment by inviting listeners to share the prices of a few staple grocery items in their neighborhoods. People can compare prices on a Google map of New York City and see where the best deals/most expensive locales are.
