Description

Hand-colored lithographed map of part of the Lower East Side, New York City, published by Spielmann & Brush in their very rare atlas Certified Copies of Original Maps of Property in New York City (1881). The last copy of that atlas was on the market with a New York City bookdealer for $12,500.

The map shows old farm plots and roads, as well as modern streets and lots, bounded by modern-day Grand Street, Houston Street, the East River, and Clinton Street.

This is where the Williamsburg Bridge leaves Manhattan.
