This is a vintage map of New York City that was produced in 1879. The map is a birdseye perspective map in that you get to see the building architecture, changes in elevation, streets vegetation etc. The map is displayed in this matter in order to emphasis the growth and change that has taken place over time. In the video we zoom in, examine and explore the various illustrations on the map. We’ve also utilized some classical music to give it some elegant appeal.
