VERNACULAR CARTOGRAPHY

As a directionally-challenged native New Yorker plagued by poor eyesight, short-term memory loss, and a distaste for GPS, I find it incredibly difficult to navigate the streets of any given neighborhood. About 10 years ago, I started drawing little maps on scraps of paper to help me get places. I can’t read maps, so they were never really helpful, but now I have hundreds of these from all over the world. I should invest in a compass.
