corps_manhattan_110412In 2005, writer and humorist Randy Cohen and designer of The New York Times Book Review Nigel Holmes proposed an entirely new map of Manhattan. Appealing to the literary expertise of The New York Times readership, the duo have created a user-generated online database which references and geolocates the varied backdrops of the greatest literary works taking place on the island of Manhattan. Readers can explore Walker Percy’s Central Park while reading an excerpt from The Last Gentleman, among hundreds of others choice literary gems.
