Lovely story:

The Mysterious Life of Jerry’s Map

Before Sim City or FarmVille, there was Jerry’s map. In the 1960s, Jerry Gretzinger began drawing a fantastical, growing map of unbelievable scope. It began with just a doodle, but now it takes up almost 2,000 8” x 10” frames.

His meticulous, iterative process intrigued documentary filmmaker Gregory Whitmore, who created this portrait of Gretzinger about two years ago. Very few people saw Mapping the Void, also known asJerry’s Map,until Vimeo’s Staff Picks blog discovered it this summer. Now the video has over 80,000 views, and dozens of comments from fans. Gretzinger posted his reaction on his blog in August, writing, “Wow! Thanks, Vimeo!”

Map of generic stream names in the United States (click for big). Each neon color corresponds to a locally used name. New England uses “brook” and “stream” - pretty boring. But much of New York uses “kill.” In the south west, the orange color, are Spanish terms  rio, arroyo, and cañada.

1973 NYC Storm Evacuation Map 
As we brace for Hurricane Irene, we thought we’d look to see what we had in the Records of the National Archives.  We found this 1973 storm evacuation map for New York City.  

probably needs readjustment…hmmm….or not.  Will the Hudson flood more now?
