Christoph Neimann: NYC Cheat Sheets

Although illustrator Christoph Neimann and his family have left Brooklyn for Berlin, he leaves behind a series of diagrams to show how he made his life easier in NYC in the NY Times' New York Cheat Sheets feature.

"Our building in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn had no buzzer, and I would have to run downstairs to let friends in, accept deliveries, etc. After some training — and thanks to my 6’4” height — I perfected a maneuver I like to refer to as 'the Northside Eagle:' Place your left foot in the middle of the vestibule, lower your upper body to precisely 90 degrees until you reach the front door, while sticking out your right foot to keep the vestibule door from closing shut."
