This is a stunning 1934 Samuel Freeman bird's eye view of New York City. The view covers all of Manhattan Island and extends from Liberty Island and the northern end of Governor's Island to the Harlem River, along with parts of New Jersey, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. The map notes streets, piers, parks, squares, ferry lines, neighborhoods, and other topographical features. Major buildings and monuments such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, City Hall, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park are rendered in profile along with several others. Bridges are also beautifully rendered and labeled, with ships sailing in the harbor. Published as an advertisement for Hotel Pennsylvania, the hotel and Pennsylvania Station (which are conveniently located on opposite sides of Seventh Avenue) are highlighted by a green oval.
This particular map was copyrighted by Samuel Freedman in 1934 and issued by Pennsylvania Hotel.
Very good. Even overall toning. Light wear along original fold lines.
