My Favorite Things: Illustrated Edition

The East Village, by James Gulliver Hancock.

The East Village, by James Gulliver Hancock.

Australian artist James Gulliver Hancock began to draw buildings during his travels, allowing him to interact with the cities he was visiting in a way that went beyond his experience as a tourist. When he moved to New York, he began the blog All the Buildings in New York. While he has not yet drawn every single building in the city, he certainly has found many wonderful examples in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo … and they are some of my favorite things.

Mr. Gulliver Hancock, who lives in Brooklyn, has been intrigued by some of the same things we here at GVSHP see in the built environment. You can hear him talk about what draws him to particular buildings here. I particularly like his statement that the act of drawing buildings is a window into understanding people. We here at Off the Grid hope you enjoy these illustrations as well.
