Title: (NY-NYC) Wonders of New York
Mapmaker: Hansell, Nils
Published: c. 1950

(New York - New York City) Wonders of New York.

It might be the best map to give you the texture of what life was like in the city at the time. Not just the illustrations for neighborhoods, or businesses, but all those dots that individualize moments in life at the time. It's not just the place where the "poultry show" occurs, or the business with "the longest row of second hand books", but it's the library that has become home to an estimate "400,000 pigeons". Whether you wanted to buy alligator leather, a hat or a gun, this map gets far beyond the surface of most pictorial maps and into the warp and woof of New York life.

In the east river is an inset map for the subway system, and the adjacent coast which you immediately assume to be Brooklyn is actually "many places of interest on other side of river" and are points of interest, but not arranged geogrphically from Coney Island to Forest Hills, to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium.

If pictorial cartography at its best is meant to get you an understanding of place, at a particular time, from a specific culture, this is a masterpiece of that approach.

Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 25 x 32.5 (inches)
