The Castello Plan is an early city map of Lower Manhattan from 1660, created by Jacques Cortelyou, surveyor of then named-New Amsterdam. Around 1667, cartographer Joan Blaeu bound the plan, together with other hand-crafted New Amsterdam depictions, to an atlas, which he sold to Cosimo III de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. This transaction most likely happened in Amsterdam, Netherlands, as it has yet to be proven that Blaeu had ever set foot in New Netherland.
