5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for a New Yorker 2 May 2013
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you are from New York or have spent any amounts of time in the city, you know how amazing of a place it is.. This takes what I've known about NY and changed my perspective on it completely. I no longer think of Grand Central as Grand Central, I no longer see Times Square as just Times Square. This book makes you really think about the history of each place and the stories it would tell if it could talk. Really interesting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars From another Map Lover 16 May 2013
By J. K. Berry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a treasure this book is both because it confirms my long held belief that maps are a vehicle for creativity, storytelling, and self-discovery, and because it is beautifully done. The book is sumptuous to hold, feeling something like the letter press maps must have as she handed them out. The responses are so varied and colorful, and share intimate stories by way of very simple lines on the maps.
I too write books about making maps, Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking, and am so gratified to find a kindred spirit in Becky Cooper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee table book! 30 April 2013
By Mars Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really love this book, it's fun to have an insight into other's views of Manhattan and what their city is like. The book is out on the coffee table and whoever comes to visit enjoys looking at it as well. There is a great mix of NYC representations and I love the fact that there is a blank map in the back. I can't wait to fill out my version of NYC.
