Big Stick, Inc.

Blestwith A. Goodhood


"Big Stick begins free distribution of its new Third Edition of the Chicago Neighborhood Map to every school, police station, and firehouse in the city of Chicago. All made possible by the supreme generosity of the Third Edition’s sponsor, EastLake Development & Management, Corp."

"Big Stick releases the Staten Island Neighborhood Map, the first of the five New York City borough maps constructed under the theme
Five Boroughs for Five Centuries."

"The Chicago Historical Society announces the selection of the Chicago Neighborhood Map for inclusion in its new gi-normous Chicago History Exhibit set to open in the fall."

"Make our day, indeed! Clint Eastwood has selected our Chicago Neighborhood Map to appear in his new movie, Flags of Our Fathers. And that would make any cartographical punk feel lucky."

"The Chicago Neighborhood Map is named to co-star in Universal Pictures upcoming release, The Break-Up, starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. Set in Chicago, we wish Jennifer and Vince only the best trying to upstage our scene-stealing talk-of-the-town."
