How it all works.

I'm trolling New York City collecting maps from flyers, government reports, informational brochures and such with the notion that all these maps will all somehow join together to create a complete map of NYC. The maps have to exist in real life- no downloads and cannot be rescaled or cut to fit.

I started to make this one

but I glued all the maps down as I found them but as I found better or larger maps I found I couldn't edit them so I had to keep them in a folder until I had all of Manhattan covered. One day I will go through through downtown and china town and collect them all again. Given the nature of the maps, it is unlikely that I will find the same maps again. This picture is as far as I got before I quit.
