One of the Very Best Views of New York City from the 19th Century
Stunning panoramic view of Manhattan, Brooklyn & Vicinity.
Oriented with North at the top, the map shows the extaordinary growth of New York City in the 19th Century, now extending beyond Central Park to the Harlem River.
A number of the major buildings and churches in the City appear prominently.
Drawn by Parsons & Atwater for Currier & Ives, this is one of the rarer, and most attractive, of their views of New York City.
