Description

Antique Map of Part of the Upper West Side, New York City.

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 Hudson River, Columbus Avenue, 96th and 99th streets.

Based on the December 1855 survey of John J. Serrell, City Surveyor.
