Beautiful ways of documenting NYC.

Funny how I seem to discover things in sets of two… This time, it’s two beautiful projects that are based on documenting a particular aspect of New York City’s man-made environment.

Up first is Project Neon by Kirsten Hively: “an effort to seek out, photograph and encourage appreciation of the glow of New York City.” via Urban Omnibus

Schiller’s Liquor Bar (Rivington Street @ Norfolk Street)

Second is All the Buildings in New York: “an attempt to draw all the buildings in New York by James Gulliver Hancock, an illustrator originally from Australia currently based in Brooklyn, New York.” via Urban Planning Blog

46th Street (aka Restaurant Row) in Manhattan

March 8’s daily design idea is what specific aspect of your city would you most want to document, if you had the time and resources? One of the many things I would seek out would be the temporary shelters built by homeless or otherwise nomadic individuals. Maybe one day you’ll see me on something like Kickstarter seeking out funding to do just that.
