Punkiesburg art work

Drawing from Bergen's map. I used this simple drawing as a template for creating  a series of paintings. The map is said to be a copied from a much older map. For more information about this map, the original blog post is Here-
 I have finished up some paintings that are a representation of the area known as Punkiesburg. The old Dutch name for the strange hill that was located near the intersection of Court St. and Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, New York. I created these images by superimposing an old drawing over the modern photographs of the area.
