All the Buildings in New York

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

While doing some Google Maps-related research for work a few weeks ago, I came across the site All the Buildings in New York, a project by Brooklyn-based Australian illustrator James Gulliver Hancock. For the project, Hancock has set out to draw all of New York’s buildings. A pretty impressive, not to mention admirable, feat! In addition to the staple landmarks, there are apartment buildings, offices, townhouses, and more (I recognize a couple from my neighborhood). How cool are the ones on wood? There’s even a map provided so you can see what buildings he’s already drawn.

If you like what you see, you can buy prints from his shop here. I think an original commission of a building would make such a thoughtful and nice gift.
