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.

Mapping New York City using found material

A few months ago I started a project mapping New York City using found maps- menu maps, tourist maps, 'we are here' maps and the like. This blog will document the map's progress as well as the wanderings I take to collect the maps.


  1. Hey! so I wanna see more about our meanderings!

  2. I think you should have an address or P.O. Box where people can send you maps...

  3. Well, that might be cheating but you can send them if you like. Especially if you live in Queens. My room mate doesn't like me to post our address on line but you can write to me at and I'll let you know where you can send them.
