A play on the famous New Yorker cover by Steinberg "A View of the World from Ninth Avenue," expanding its remit to the whole state of New York. This view was published by Harvey Hutter & Co. in New York in c. 1989 and forms part of a series of city-focused views that all play on the famous cover.
The view includes a trove of detail, focused not only on Manhattan and the various boroughs of New York, but also on upstate areas including the Finger Lakes, the Catskills, Albany, and the Adirondacks. This portion of the view really preserves a nice detailed look at upstate New York. Beyond the state's official limits, the map gives way to a small Alaska and Canada, and, over the north pole, one can find Siberia, China, Russia, and Europe, all miniaturized.
The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one for the release of Moscow on the Hudson by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit.
