Handmade to order
The 'eye' sits somewhere above Jersey City, looking east across most of Manhattan and a big chunk of Brooklyn. Manhattan is beautifully encircled by the Hudson and East Rivers.
The Statue of Liberty stands in the bottom right corner of the map, looking at New York City.
All four of the bridges can be seen, though Manhattan and Queensboro bridges appear slightly unfinished - they were completed in 1909 and this map is dated to 1908.
Many other landmarks can be seen, though most of New York's high rise buildings and skyscrapers hadn't yet been built in 1908.
If nothing else though, this map shows you just how many boats and piers once crowded the coastlines of Brooklyn, Jersey and Manhattan.
Because this map is an unusual size - it's extremely wide! - it would make a fantastic statement piece above a sofa, table, mantelpiece or staircase. Please note that the smaller (18, 24 and 36 inch) maps have white edges that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). The larger sizes, and all the framed maps, are all printed and pre-cut perfectly to size.
It looks magnificent at every size and you'll always be able to read the writing on the map. I can print very large versions of this map up to 180 inches (450cm) wide. Get in touch if you're looking for very large maps.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from New York, or perhaps someone who loves this artistic style of map.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
