Hello Little Thailand!
This map was created (as a result of more than one friends suggestion, thank you friends) for the Brian Lehrer show. He has asked local artists to submit maps of " NYC's Lesser Known Ethnic Communities"-the deadline is today! Their favorites will be featured on the WNYC website and on-air during the show. Fingers crossed...

Little Thailand is my contribution. Only 10 minutes away from home (Greenpoint), is Little Thailand in Elmhurst, Queens. It is so cool! I have barely scratched the surface, but when you go, you are somewhere other than Queens. This is why I live in NYC.
The color palate is distinctly Thai, taken from a night market photo I stumbled across in my searches. I love pink and red together, it might be my favorite color combination. This is also the largest map I have made so far. It was a great project.
