H. and I have this ongoing joke about giving each other credit for things. For example, I get credit for making our apartment beautiful. He gets credit for... well I'll get back to you on that.

That's pretty much the whole joke. Are you laughing your pants off?

But to be fair, he was the one who found one of our favorite chairs in the local junk shop.

So he gets credit for that.

And I'm going to give him credit for something new. While I was in California this past week, he went to the NYC Department of City Planning Map & Bookstore, and picked up these fab giant maps for about $3 each.

NYC Historical Development 1625-1988

I love maps. In a previous life (or maybe in a future life) I was/will be a cartographer.

These babies are HUGE, and for $3 they are a deal. So, kudos to H. for knowing to buy these giant cheapies!

Now, how or where we will hang these is a different matter altogether.

UPDATE: To be fair and true, some credit goes to Ally Jane  who didn't want to walk to the bookstore alone and guided H. to the map store.


  1. Credit where credit is due! B and I were like that - 99% of the time, credit was to moi...but the rare time, him! Love maps myself - we had one in Belfast of the old mail shipping routes circa 1912. So awesome!

  2. What an amazing find! Great job H.
