Well used example of Mark Tiddeman's important early chart of New York Harbor.

Tiddeman's chart of New York Harbor shows the area between Sandy Hook and Westchester with part of Long Island. The chart kncludes the Rariton River, Staten Island, Amboy, Elizabeth Town, Newark, Bergen, Manhattan, Harlem, Gravesend, Redhook, Flatbush, New Town and Flushing. The chart details the difficulties of maneuvering ships in the harbor though it also reveals New York's excellent port location. North is oriented to the right.

This chart, first published in "The English Pilot" (Book Four) circa 1732, was at that time the only printed chart of the area available. Although it is highly inaccurate, it was published without significant alterations, for 60 years.
