Antique printed color map of part of Manhattan, New York City, from the Atlas of New York City by Bromley, 1930. Shows W 133rd to W 139th and Twelfth Ave to Amsterdam Ave including Riverside Park and the Hebrew Orphan Asylum (which was almost sold to the Yankees, who wanted land to build a rival stadium to the Polo Grounds). The explanation key for this atlas was only included on the index map- pink indicates brick, yellow is frame (wood), an X means the building is a stable, the numbers and letters on each building indicate the number of stories of the building and whether it has a basement, store, or saloon (see index image for full explanation). Very good antique condition with toning overall. Sheet measures approx. 11.5 x 16.25 inches. Double-sided sheet has NYC093A on one side and NYC093B on the other side (please add only one of these two maps to your cart).
