The 24 images in this collection begin with the earliest known map of the area – hand-drawn in the seventeenth century and depicting plantations and American Indian settlements – and trace New York’s evolution into a modern city, as seen in a satellite photograph. They include historic drawings of Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and a proposed plan for Central Park, and are designed to be easily removed and framed. Separate pages with extended captions detail the historical context of each map and view. Slightly off-mint. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
