So thrilled to be moderating the discussion and live illustration event “Parisians vs. New Yorkers" hosted by Untapped Cities at the gorgeous French Consulate on 5th Avenue and 79th Street TOMORROW May 2nd from 6:30-8:30pm. The event is free and I’ll be signing copies of Mapping Manhattan after! RSVP here. 

(Vahram Muratyan, the genius behind Paris vs. New York will, unfortunately, not be there, but how could I resist using baguette vs. bagel as the picture for this post? plus he has a map in the book and is just an all-around lovely guy.)

Can’t promise that this map from the gorgeous Australian supermodel Nicole Trunfio is suitable for the kiddies.

My grandfather, Irwin Cooper, was a Broadway and jazz drummer in the 1950s and ’60s in New York, and a member of the Local 802—the musicians’ union. 
This map by Local 802’s Allegro columnist, Bill Crow, makes the jazz of my grandfather’s New York come alive again. You can read Crow’s monthly Bandroom Columns here.

Love this map inspired by the Death Cab for Cutie song, The New Year. The dotted lines are what happens when you take the map, fold any point to meet the “home” dot, and mark the path of the crease.

Map from Peter Sylvester, a talented photographer who tends bar at Old Town on 18th Street. In continuous operation since 1892, it’s one of the oldest bars in the City.

Love this representation of the way a city can come to feel like a ghost town, haunted with memories.
