Review

"Contrary to the concept that a map's purpose is to find the best route from point A to point B, the images in Harmon's book are an invitation into another kind of cartography--one that includes the mapmakers' relationship to the past, present, and, above all, the imagination." -Afar

"Beautiful, intricate, and informative, these maps are sure to school even lifelong New Yorkers." -Real Simple

"These maps aren't wayfinding tools--GPS apps have that covered. Rather, they're alternate ways of seeing a city." -Fast Co.Design

"These are SO much better than an MTA subway map.... It's seriously awesome."

..".a layered inquiry into the relationship between self and space, the plurality of perspectives aimed at the same place, and the myriad ways in which we orient ourselves to the landscape against which we live out our lives." - Brain Pickings

"Map enthusiasts and New York fans will love this new book." - Forbes

"What a find! You Are Here: N.Y.C. provides a delightfully ingenious perspective on territory that most readers might view as familiar. Witty essays by Sarah Boxer, Bob Mankoff, Maria Popova, and others accompany a four-century cartographical treasure chest that includes Andy Warhol's Central Park, Saul Bellow's "View of the World from Ninth Avenue," a 1950s proposed subway bomb shelter, the 1908 pneumatic telegram service, a pigeon's aerial view, and a map made up of newspapers dated Sept. 11, 2001." - The New York Times

..".We can't get enough of maps reinterpreting how we look at the city. [You Are Here: NYC] has assembled an impressive gallery of hundreds of them to give readers a strange and wondrous view of NYC's past, present and imagined future." - Gothamist

"You Are Here: NYC is a tribute to the beautiful art maps that have helped city-goers in NYC navigate their city over the years." - Visual News

"These are SO much better than an MTA subway map. it's seriously awesome: There's everything from a nerd's guide to the city to a breakdown of the totally unrealistic apartments on Friends." - Time Out New York
