2. April 2013
Armed with hundreds of blank maps that she had painstakingly printed by hand, Cooper hit the pavement in New York City, starting at 231st Street in the Bronx and ending at the southern tip of the island, where she plopped down on a bench, exhausted, to watch New York Harbor lap at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Along her journey she met police officers, homeless people, fashion models, tourists and senior citizens who had lived in Manhattan all of their lives. She met Ice-cream van drivers, Wall Street bankers, paint can drummers and street chess players. She handed the strangers the gray outline of the island, asked them to "map their Manhattan" in whatever way was meaningful to them and to mail the personalised maps back to her P.O. Box when they were done. Soon, her post office box was filled with a cartography of personal narratives, intimate and revealing: past loves, lost homes, childhood memories and emotional confessions. One mapmaker charted Manhattan in pools of fear and relief. Another circled the Plaza and enclosed a page long story of her relationship to the fabled hotel. The portraits are striking in their creativity, illuminating in their subjectivity. Mapping Manhattan is a celebration of Truman Capote's "diamond iceberg," an homage to the people who populate our patchwork isle and the contradictory visions they posit of their New York. With echoes of both the PostSecret series and E. B. White's Here is New York, the book will include approximately 75 maps from both anonymous mapmakers and from notable New Yorkers, including Man on Wire aerialist Philippe Petit, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov, Momofuku chef David Chang, and New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik, who will also pen the foreword to the book. The book will also contain a blank map that can be filled out by the reader.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cool project 21. Mai 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The general idea can be read in the description: the author distributed blank Manhattan maps both to random people in the street and to selected more famous New Yorkers. The result is a colorful mix of very different interpretations, of what Manhattan is: a scene of love, terror, work, transport, special places, complicated life stories, and so on.

Personally, I am always fascinated by the intervined fates of people and cities, a very classic example of which is "Berlin Alexanderplatz" by the German author Alfred Döblin. Obviously, this book is a completely different take on the subject, and a couple of decades have passed by since, but the general idea that a city has a soul and forms part of the life of people that live in it, is the same concept.

This is probably not a book that you read from page 1 to the end - it invites for a casual stroll, discovering the different maps, and diving in and out. The material and general layout is really nice, so I guess both facts and the above mentioned creative concept behind the book make it a good present for anyone that has a connection to NY.

Overall, two thumbs up for this great project!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great gift for a New Yorker 3. Mai 2013
Von Chris - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are from New York or have spent any amounts of time in the city, you know how amazing of a place it is.. This takes what I've known about NY and changed my perspective on it completely. I no longer think of Grand Central as Grand Central, I no longer see Times Square as just Times Square. This book makes you really think about the history of each place and the stories it would tell if it could talk. Really interesting read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A long, enjoyable walk down Broadway--all of it. 8. April 2013
Von Alice E Matthews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Go ahead and admit it: You've lived in New York for ten years, twenty years, maybe you were born in Manhattan and lived here all your life and you still haven't been to the Museum of the City of New York. Or maybe you haven't been on the Staten Island Ferry, or the High Line. Becky Cooper may not have seen it all in the process of writing this book, but she has perfectly illustrated the irrefutable notion that there is always more to be discovered in Manhattan.
Ms. Cooper takes us along on her mini-Odyssey, and in doing so makes us realize why we are here in this frustrating, exhausting and heartbreaking city. Through her young eyes and the eyes of a disparate group of visitors and residents she shares the many joys and constant surprises that make New York the best place in the world for discovery, reinvention and amusement.
And for those of you who have never been here: Read the book and come see.
Whether you live in New York for ambition, art or altruism you will love Mapping Manhattan. Beautifully constructed, a treat to hold and share, you'll want to leave it out when you've finished your walk with Becky Cooper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great coffee table book! 30. April 2013
Von Marilyne H. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I really love this book, it's fun to have an insight into other's views of Manhattan and what their city is like. The book is out on the coffee table and whoever comes to visit enjoys looking at it as well. There is a great mix of NYC representations and I love the fact that there is a blank map in the back. I can't wait to fill out my version of NYC.
