- the story
Inspired by work with the Wildlife Conservation Society, this artwork reimagines and reconstructs the ecosystems of Manhattan as it was when it was discovered in 1609–From the freshwater marsh at Times Square to the meandering trout stream that is now the West Village's Minetta Lane.
Armed with blank maps of Manhattan, Becky Cooper asked everyday New Yorkers to illustrate what the city means to them. Showcasing unique visual points of view, this metropolitan artwork reminds us to make your city yours and cherish your own corners of the world. A blank letterpress map of the city is also included in your purchase, so you or your favorite New Yorker can add your own stories and send it in to Becky's project.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.
