Description

Hand-colored lithographed map of part of Hell's Kitchen, 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 34th Street, 42nd Street, 10th Avenue, and the Hudson River. The Hudson Yards development is at the southern (right) end of the map.

The map shows Floy's Horticultural Garden, a 19th-century Harlem-based nursery.
