Three new maps added to oldmapsofnewyork.com
When I launched Old Maps of New York a few months ago it only had a handful of maps, today I have uploaded 3 more maps onto the site which you can pan and zoom into as you would with Google Maps. The three newly added maps are shown below.
New York 1756
The 1756 Tobias Conrad Lotter’s map of the Middle Atlantic and New England regions during the British colonial period
New York 1831
A pocket map of New York City issued in 1831 by J. Langdon. It has a Westward orientation and covers New York from Forty Fifth street south to the Battery. The map is divided and color coded according to the 14 wards. All streets are marked, as are the piers, slips, parks, and important public buildings including Bellevue Hospital, the West Battery Castle, City Hall, the House of Refuge, the Alms House, and the Penitentiary. The following Parks: City Hall Park, Washington Square Park, the Battery, and the Parade (today's Madison Square Park) are all included.
New York 1835
This is c. 1835 edition of David H. Burr and Edward Walker’s pocket map of the City of New York. It covers New York City south of 26th street to the west and south of 40th street to the east. Churches, theaters, ferries, government buildings, museums, and other public centers are shown in detail. Columbia College is indicated on Murray Street and Fulton Fish Market, St. Marks Church in the East Village and the nation’s first hospital at Bellevue are also included. The map includes parts of Brooklyn and Williamsburg, separate cities at that time.
