A bit of a departure from the maps I normally post on here, but too interesting a map and too happy a story not to post:




My friend dropped their iPhone in a taxi on Sat night and we tracked it on the find a phone app.  20 hours after losing it, the taxi driver found it, with 3% bat left, called my friend and returned it! Below is the tracked version!

The Style Line featured Mapping Manhattan this month! Best part? Backstories behind some of the awesome maps in the book, including ones by graphic novelist Liana Finck and I-will-walk-every-street-in-NYC Matt Green. Second best part? The map behind me calls Russia “The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics”. Read more: http://thestyleline.com/mapping-manhattan/

Snowflakes strung across intersections, christmas trees on every corner in Carroll Gardens, cravings for mulled wine… It must be that time of year—the best of lists! Thrilled that Mapping Manhattan's made Amazon’s and Brain Picking's lists of this year's best Art & Design books.

Mapping Manhattan is in today’s issue of the New York Times Book Review!!!! Feels like making it to Broadway. 

“Maps,” Cooper says in this book the size of a large billfold, “are more about their makers than the places they describe.” That is certainly the case with the people whose memories and desires, hopes and despairs, are captured here against an outline of the island where New York began.

Gorgeous new map from Liz Bartucci, author of “Secret Lives of the Unemployed.” I’ve gotta admit: this map hits pretty close to home.

So unbelievably excited and honored to have Mapping Manhattan featured in Maria Popova’s (Brain Pickings curator extraordinaire) collection of must-reads. Popova collaborated with designer Kelli Anderson (who happens to be my favorite designer ever since I saw her Creative Mornings talk last year— I mean have you seen her paper record player?) to turn the list into a “magical papercraft wonderland” on exhibit now in the bookstore of the main branch of the NYPL. Here’s a time lapse video of the exhibit’s installation. (You can see MM’s red spine pop into the picture @ 0:44)
