NP Times Features Best of Your Town

Craig ShanklesBest of Your Town has been featured in a fine article in the New Paltz Times by Mike Townshend.

Mike writes:

“Craig Shankles has started www.BestofYourTown.com — a marketing venture that aims to promote everything New Paltz. Its first major product is an illustrated, cartoon map of every business in the college town.”

“[The map] bleeds hometown pride in subtle ways — a way that most locals will get immediately. They printed 15,000 maps initially — all of them are gone.”
