NYC Reimagined: City of Women
on 11 October 2016
Even though the biggest (and arguably most recognizable) statue in NYC is Lady Liberty, most of the streets, monuments, bridges and buildings in the city are named for men. For their upcoming book "Nonstop Metropolis" Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro have made a "creative atlas of New York City" that, through maps and essays, explores a different NYC. Just one of the pages is "City of Women" map, which pinpoints and traces significant artists, musicians, activists, actors, writers, directors and more—recreating a kind of feminist version of the iconic city. Take a closer look at the New Yorker.
