Description

Greenwich Manuscript Survey By New York City Surveyor Charles Loss

Finely executed hand drawn survey map of the area between Herring Street, Barton Street and Houston Street (then called Village Street, and later Hamersly Street, before later becoming a part of Houston Street, which previously ended at Sixth Avenue).

The map also notes the Boundary of Nicholas Law and the Trinity Church Boundary. 

Charles Loss was one of the most important early New York Surveyors.  Among other things, he was the surveyor assigned to review the work of J.F. Mangin, which would ultimately result in the creation of the Mangin-Goerck Map of New York.
