Detailed pocket map of Manhattan by one of New York's greatest mapmakers, David H. Burr.

The city is shown up to about Kips Bay. The Hudson River shows a lot of boat and ferry activity.

The map also includes considerable detail in Brooklyn, illustrating both the Village of Brooklyn and Williamsburg. On the outskirts of downtown Brooklyn the Navy Yard is shown, as well as a Poor House, Burring Ground, and Fort Green (shown with actual fortifications), and the US Naval Hospital.

The ferries to Brooklyn are labelled and their routes are shown, as is the case with the boats to Bridgeport.

Another issue of the map included a border of views of buildings in the city. Subsequent editions of that presentation included fewer vignettes.
