Laser-cut wooden relief map of Brooklyn, featuring Brooklyn, New York. Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.
Located on the western end of Long Island, Brooklyn is 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, according to the new Municipal Charter of "Greater New York," Brooklyn was consolidated with the other cities, boroughs, and counties to form the modern "City of 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: Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Brooklyn Heights, Canarsie, Flatlands, and Park Slope.
Wood Charts are based on soundings and measurements from bathymetric and nautical charts. Each depth layer is laser-cut from sheets of Baltic birch and glued together "bread and butter" style to create the contours and shorelines of striking waterways. Select layers are hand-stained a rich blue-green color to discern water from land, and major byways are etched into the land. The whole work is framed in a custom, solid wood frame and protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic.
