Vintage me up, Baby! NY in the 70*s

Upon my arrival back to Paris (after a long absence for some interior-designing reasons of some sort), a huge enveloppe waited for me at my door! Erik had sent me all his love and even more: some fascinating vintage stuff for the library!

Among the documents in this time capsule, he had sent me a vintage map of NY from 1971, and I am still thinking on how to thank him in an appropriate way for all this (insert big ;) here, hehe).
I just love this map, and the funny graphic style in which the rendering is done. It also displays a lot of "tourist sites" that aren*t quite that touristy anymore, such as half a dozen churches one can visit...

So now as a special feature in the "maps", "vintage" and "what am I reading now" sections, here is exciting 1970*s NY:







Thank you baby for the map! I love you!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
