Divorce on Google Maps: New York Times publishes Bexley writer’s emotional essay

“My husband moved out about six weeks ago, marking the end of our nearly 19-year relationship, but Google Maps hasn’t noticed yet.”

Bexley Native Maggie Smith is a poet, the author of “Good Bones,” and a recently published New York Times writer.


Her piece, titled “Tracking the Demise of My Marriage on Google Maps,” paints a poignant picture of the heartbreaking journey through a divorce through the camera lens of modern technology.

From the normal, everyday scenes of a family’s home to divvying up the contents of a broken family’s house, Smith takes readers down a path on which harsh reality is discovered.
