Important: Zazzle, the company which does my prints, will let you shrink the map down from the original size if you ask, but I cannot guarantee it will look good if you do.

    you mention the “original size” of the map is optimal when purchasing from zazzle, but there is no explicit statement what the original size is. i presume it is implied that the “original size” is the size that you list here, i.e., 20″ x 15″ for the Hudson version.. but I strongly recommend that zazzle identify (somehow) your “optimal” size…

    BTW: your work is fantastic

    LOVE this! Just wondering why you skipped Garrison (between Peekskill and Cold Spring and a Metro North stop). I’m guessing there was a reason – did you only include towns of a certain size? Some other reading? (I’m from Garrison, which is why I ask!)

      I can’t say for certain what I may have been thinking at the time (this was a couple of years ago), but in many places I have to do some generalization. That’s a pretty dense area, and I probably left a good many towns off for reasons of space, though probably not by any particular strict metric like size. All maps exclude 99% of the world (this is why they are powerful and useful), but these are tough decisions with no right answers.
