Labeled “Vicinity of New York”, this map shows the area surrounding New York City, detailing the region south of the city of Yonkers from the Paterson – Newark, NJ area in the west to Glen Cove and Hempstead on Long Island and continuing as far south as Asbury Park, NJ. Early railways, such as the Coney Island Horse Railway and the New York, West Shore and Buffalo Railway, are identified. An excellent locator map for finding the suburban and neighboring communities of New York City at a time of rapid suburban development and migration. The map also identifies a number of area cemeteries, the newly constructed Brooklyn Bridge and the islands (Dix and Hoffman’s Island) that were used to quarantine arriving immigrants from Europe.
