WEEK ONE: Greetings, urban designers and fellow classmates! This is a map of Kips Bay in New York, where I have recently moved. I only drew details of the blocks that contain green spaces--to emphasize how much the city lacks them. I'm interested in comparing the layout of these spaces in the different hometowns of all the students! (Note: This is a mental map.)
