The History Of New York Hip-Hop In One Packed Map

As part of their ambitious 100 Years of New York Music coverage, New York magazine commissioned Sarah King—known for her dense, typographical illustrations—to make a map of notable hip-hop landmarks in the city. Check out 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx, which may be the "birthplace of Hip-Hop," and the Stapleton Houses, home base of the Wu-Tang Clan.

You can see it in its full, unpixelated glory in the newest issue of New York, on newsstands now.
