A Holiday Design for Santa

Rudy the Elf got his first big assignment from the BIG man this Christmas. (Yippee!) He’s responsible for submitting a list of 10 potential delivery points to Santa for his famous distribution of gifts. Wanting to leave a good impression Rudy plotted out a special easter egg for Santa to discover. However, in his haste to show off he sloppily recorded the delivery point data which is now unplottable.

What shape will Santa discover if the following address data was scrubbed and plotted on a map?

A - 1277 North 14th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11230
