Description

Hand-colored lithographed antique map of the land that became present-day Penn South Houses, 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 19th-century streets and lots.  Much of the map is today taken up by the Penn South Houses development in northwest Chelsea.

Condition Description
Some edge wear, notably a chip from the upper right corner affecting the printed image.
