This is a line drawing of Wrightwood, California, a mountain resort town located just above Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Mountains. I created this map using a combination of my hand-drawn art, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop. Wrightwood is a wonderful day trip for any visitor to California. In the winter, you can ski at Mountain High. In the summer, you can go zip lining at Pacific Crest Ziplines or hike the Pacific Crest Trail. There are many mom-and-pop restaurants to choose from, ranging from the elegant steak house, Blue Ridge Inn, to more casual fare like burgers at The Yodeler, pizza at Mile High Pizza, or tacos and tequila at Mexico Lindo. The Evergreen Cafe is known for its homestyle breakfasts. Village Grind is known for its wine bar and live music, or you can sit out on the patio and enjoy craft beers at the Wrightwood Brewery.
This map was inspired not only by the movie, but I had stumbled on information that Susan's house was not a fictional place, but a real house here on Long Island. My husband and I took a ride and there it was, the only difference was there was an addition upstairs. I didn't put the addition in my sketch. I actually forgot it because it is in the middle of the roof, so my drawing of the house is mix of 1946 and 2017. It was awesome, all of those years seeing that scene in the movie and when we drove down the street, it was like going back in time. I couldn't nail down the Walkers apartment nor the Brooks Retirement home, so those are guesses on the map based on location information gleaned from watching the movie several times. Those are the two locations marked as "fictional."
Season's Greetings and Happy New Year!

Weehawken, NJ is a small town on the western shore of the Hudson River. Perched at the top of a cliff, it boasts a magnificent view of Manhattan, and is known for being the site of the famous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Its historic water tower, inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, glows red and can be seen from New York City. Among its many grand Victorian homes, Weehawken's public library stands out for its beautiful restoration. People enjoy the waterfront for dining, recreation and relaxation. Weehawken also happens to be the place I call home.
"The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day" was written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844 for a collection called "Flowers for Children, Volume 2." We know this poem by the popular name "Over the River and through the Woods." Music was written to go along with the poem and it is a common holiday song heard during Thanksgiving and the holiday season. The words were changed to say that the children were going to Grandmother's house when in fact it is Grandfather's house in the poem. Either way, it is a warm way to welcome the holiday season.

Downtown Los Angeles has much to offer in terms of food, coffee/study spots, ice cream, impactful and diverse non-profits, and cultural monuments. I picked this area because there's always something going on every week and you can never get sick of the diverse cultural aspects of Downtown LA, Arts District, Chinatown, and Little Tokyo!
Eagle Rock is located in Northeast Los Angeles. The influx of food places attracts many to the downtown area where Eagle Rock Blvd and Colorado Blvd intersect. Here is a map of some food places I would recommend as an Eagle Rock resident of 26 years.
