My Brooklyn Map in Ray Kelly's Hands

Imagine how excited and happy I was to see my rainbow color Brooklyn Type Map being given to NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly!

Brooklyn City Councilmember Vincent Gentile gave the map—"a poster that colorfully delineated the neighborhoods of Brooklyn"—to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. It was during a Bay Ridge luncheon honoring the Police Commissioner, held at Third Avenue’s Greenhouse Café, and "was an opportunity for community representatives to thank Kelly for his leadership, and for Kelly to update the group on the NYPD’s evolving crime-fighting techniques."

I think it looks pretty great! Hope you like it, Commissioner Kelly. 

Here's the article, if you're curious. And get the map here.

Obviously I am dumbfounded by the devastation around our area. A lot of friends, families and our customers got affected by Sandy. We got spared from some of the major effects the storm brought so I am working on some new art and some fundraising options to help support. My hands and hearts go out to all those affected.

Here's a few quick desktops and icons for your computer or FB page.

Please welcome the newest member of the map family, Queens New York. This one is a bit different from the rest as I've included the names of the bordering hoods from other counties, not the county name, so their is even more info for the surrounding boroughs. I payed a lot of attention to detail and did thorough homework on including as many hoods and parks as I could. I also had the help of a friend who is born and bred here, down to the QUEENS tattoo on his neck. So rest assured every important neighborhood has been included; from Hunters Point to Bellerose, Malba all the way down to Old Howard Beach and the A train out to the Rockaways. Modern cartography at its finest, available for purchase immediately in the store.
