One of the Very Best Views of New York City from the 19th Century

Stunning panoramic view of Manhattan, Brooklyn & Vicinity.

Oriented with North at the top, the map shows the extaordinary growth of New York City in the 19th Century, now extending beyond Central Park to the Harlem River.

A number of the major buildings and churches in the City appear prominently.

Drawn by Parsons & Atwater for Currier & Ives, this is one of the rarer, and most attractive, of their views of New York City.
