European cities at the same latitude as North American ones

Someone created a map that positions major European cities at the same latitude as they would be if they were in North America, and it’s kind of fascinating. I’m probably not the best person to assess this kind of thing, because I am terrible at geography, but I had no idea that Paris is actually quite a significant distance north of Toronto latitude-wise, or that Toronto and Florence are about the same latitude. Lisbon and Athens are at about the same latitude as northern California and Tripoli is around San Francisco.
