This is part of a series of maps of my late father, Newton Hunt. My dad was nearly blind, and read Braille.
In 1981, the year I was born, my parents and I lived at the corner of West 93rd St. and Columbus Avenue in New York.
In white ink, you can see piano string lengths as my dad was a piano technician, working with Steinway, Yamaha, the Metropolitan Opera, and a variety of colorful private clients..!
And who doesn’t love a good water tower?

This is a series of white lines on black.
