We were recently turned on to this very cool hand drawn map of NYC by artist Jenni Sparks. And one of the nice things about it is that it doesn’t just stick to Manhattan, but expands into Brooklyn and western Queens. It’s also interesting to note that she is based in the UK (she’s done a map of London, too), not the US.
Here’s a bit of the Queens section (click to enlarge):
To see it up close even more, head to the Evermade site (they commissioned the map), where they have a cool magnifying feature. The Queens section is the final image in the thumbnails. It is so cool to see Queens through her eyes. Awesome about the subway lines being included as they are, too.
So how many spots do you recognize on this map? Tell us in the comments of on twitter at @queensnycity!
