This neat map shows all of the various "Mother Tongues" spoken around New York City's most diverse borough: Queens. The map appears in the book Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas by author, historian and activist Rebecca Solnit, a stunning collection of unique and original New York City maps that speak more to locals than tourists.
Nonstop Metropolis, the culminating volume in a trilogy of atlases, conveys innumerable unbound experiences of New York City through twenty-six imaginative maps and informative essays. Bringing together the insights of dozens of experts—from linguists to music historians, ethnographers, urbanists, and environmental journalists—amplified by cartographers, artists, and photographers, it explores all five boroughs of New York City and parts of nearby New Jersey.
Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas is available for purchase on Amazon.
