    Great map. Glad you had such a good time in my old home town.

  2. austin Says:

    thanks, liza! which was your hometown–brooklyn or NYC in general?

  3. liza Says:

    Both, actually. I was born and raised in Manhattan, lived in Manhattan quite a lot as an adult but spent my last ten city years in Brooklyn. Now I live in Vermont.

    I love your website. Your art is amazing and you write about such interesting ideas and people. So often artist’s blogs are endlessly self referential, I find yours a breath of fresh air.

  4. Austin Says:

    Liza: you are too kind!!

    And I like the progression: Manhattan, then Brooklyn, then Vermont. I have yet to visit VT, but I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things…
