Description

Detailed large format 1866 map of New York City by Matthew Dripps, which appeared in Valentine's Manual.

The map covers the entire island of Manhattan as well as parts of Brooklyn, Queens, Hoboken and Jersey City. The map shows all streets and even some individual buildings. The names and tracts of Manhattan's original land owners are superimposed over the grid. Where Columbia University now stands, this map reveals a 19th century Lunatic Asylum.

In Queens, Dripps labels Hunters Point and shows the beginnings of the Long Island Railroad. Astoria is well delineated. Central Park is shown.

A number of Ferry lines and other important details are shown.
