New York City Historical Geography (1893-1894) YouTube Video

Hey everyone, just wanted to share one of our latest YouTube uploads that examines and explores a vintage New York City map that was produced in 1893 – 1894. In the video we look at various characteristics that make this map special. For example the fact that this map is a very slender in terms of horizontal width is kind of rare. New York City maps tend to be show in a vertical statue, but typically they are never this slender horizontally. In the video we also look at the various transportation lines detailed on the map. Often we see railways that travel to ports that have ferry systems that travel to Manhattan Island as well as other places in the NYC metropolitan area.
