The map shows the progress of the Long Island Railroad system as well as the Montauk Steamboat Company lines. It also notes important towns, bays, roads, harbors, beaches and other topographical details. The top and bottom margins contains the lines 'Long Island has over four hundred miles of coast line on ocean, sound and bays,' and 'Long Island trends east and west and is cooled by prevailing southerly ocean breezes.'
