This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of New York City that you might want to check out.

Some bridge in New York, I guess. Looks pretty ho-hum.

I don't recognize it, though, so that might mean that they tore it down and replaced it with something more iconic.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in New York City's history, check out the New York Historical Society's website.
