Eh ... Hello. I have never done this before and I am not sure where I am in this Forum? But I would like to say that I have an original copy of Constantine Anederson's Manhattan Axonometric drawing from 1985. It is gorgeous. I hope I can figure out how to get back onto this Forum just in case people reply to this message. I am in Cambridge England. All best wishes and Happy Christmas.

Are you selling yours?

Welcome to the forum, Lorna. There was another thread (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4234) about this a while back. I bought the Herman Bollmann 1964 map, which is a very nice representation of the midtown skyline at the time. I've never seen the Constantine Anderson map :(.
