Wood Chart Brooklyn
WoodChart's beautiful map of Brooklyn is a 3-D nautical wood map featuring the most populous of New York City's five boroughs. Brooklyn was an independent incorporated city until January 1, 1898, when, after a long political campaign during the 1890s, it was consolidated with the other cities, boroughs, and counties to form the modern "City of New York", according to the new Municipal Charter of "Greater New York,". The borough continues, however, to maintain a distinct culture. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods are ethnic enclaves. Brooklyn's official motto, displayed on the Borough's seal and flag, is Eendraght Maeckt Maght, which translates from early modern Dutch to "Unity makes strength".
Points of interest include: Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Brooklyn Heights, Canarsie, Flatlands, and Park Slope

Starting with a bathymetric chart (the underwater equivalent of a topographic map), Wood Charts uses laser-cutters to carve the contours into sheets of Baltic birch and glue them together to create a powerful visual depth. They hand stain select layers a blue-green so it's easy to discern land from water, etch major byways into the land, then frame the carving in a custom, solid-wood frame protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic and ready to hang.
