new york by memory

This is insane. Autistic artist Stephen Wiltshire sketched the entire New York City skyline FROM MEMORY after taking one 20 minute helicopter ride to take it all in. Every single building in that drawing is not only correct but also completely to scale!! Apparently he's got drawings of Madrid, London, Rome and a pile of others.

Man, I could barely tell you the layout of the New York apartment we rented....

Thanks to Joanna for this great story.
