New York by Hand

Looking at a typical map of New York City, its impossible to get an understanding of the vibrant, complex layers of every nook and cranny to explore. British Illustrator Jenni Sparks doesn’t quite get absolutely every worthwhile milemarker into her hand-drawn map of NYC, but her fun, elaborate rendition is a fantastic visual representation of the city’s range of personalities. She includes well-known institutions like City Hall and the Theater District alongside small bars and restaurants, and cultural notes on Sex and the City and Bob Dylan.
