Super Mario World Map of Bushwick Brooklyn NY

I might be able to navigate through the area better if the map looked like this! The map not only features many of favorite Bushwick locales, including Maria Hernandez Park, The McKibbin Lofts, Cafe Ghia  and a pizza for Roberta’s, but it is also a scavenger hunt type map.

Start off at one location, and traverse the area collecting paint pallettes, coffee, tacos and cans of PBR. Depending on where you turn, you may or may not run into Yoshi smoking a joint.

“Subway stops become green pipes, bodegas become Toad’s Houses, and Mario becomes…well…Hipster Mario!” says Ken Kocses, the maps artist.

The original painting of the map, which is acryilc on wood, was for sale at one point, but not sure if it still is HERE. You can check out Ken, a local artist from Queens, and his other Mario World inspired artwork on his official website - Ken Colors

Ken wasn't the only one to give New York a Mushroom Kingdom style. Robert Bacon Mario-ized the NYC Subway System map. They are for sale too, along with other cities inspired by other video games, such as Zelda III.
