This print is a bird's-eye view map of New York and Brooklyn.Originally done by Parsons & Atwater and published by Currier & Ives in 1875. It provides a colorful look at New York and vicinity just ten years after the American Civil War ended. At the bottom is Hoboken and Jersey City, and at the center, Manhattan. Brooklyn is in the distance, pictured with the new projected bridge.
The map captures the city of New York two years after trading was halted on the stock market on September 20, 1873 for ten days following the failure of Jay Cooke & Co., the first suspension of its kind. This amazingly detailed panoramic map from 1875 shows buildings, ports, railways and shipping traffic.

When purchased with a frame, we frame the print for you and it is shipped in a high quality shipping box especially designed for frames to ensure it gets to you in mint condition.
