  1. Mr. Hill,

    I've been a fan of Archidose since my first year studio professor introduced it to me.

    I must say that I have really enjoyed your book! I just got back from a week-long trip to NYC to celebrate finishing my undergraduate program in Architecture. The book helped me plan what buildings I wanted to see, and even helped me when I was lost! My blog talks about my trip. The book was definitely worth the investment for this trip, and future trips to NYC!

    1. Thanks, Ulysses V. I'm glad the book came in handy. I'll admit I made the maps to be used for more than just locating the buildings; sounds like that worked. Best of luck with your grad school search.
