Mapping Manhattan: A Love Story in Maps, Becky Cooper, 2013

The author distributes maps of Manhattan consisting only of the island’s outline, Broadway, Central Park, and Houston Street to famous NY residents as well as hundreds of random citizens encountered on the 13 mile walk from 225th and Broadway to the Battery and publishes 75 of the results—unique versions of life histories on this storied island.  A brilliant idea and execution and a treat for all New Yorkers and others.
