BROOKLYN Neighborhoods

Brooklyn's Neighborhoods. Their names conjure images. Their streets show both a Brooklyn sameness and a uniqueness that hints at neighborhood pride. This Drawing is an homage to the neighborhoods and the architecture - and a helpful tool, after many visits to sprawling, beautiful and gritty Brooklyn, to get the neighborhoods straight!

The neighborhoods are named and framed over a vintage map background. Hand-drawn Brooklyn streetscapes from a variety of neighborhoods frame the map.
