Published in the same year as the opening of the Statue of Liberty, this stunning bird's eye view map depicts the great city in a time of unmatched prosperity. Ellis Island had yet to become the established destination for immigrants, and the town was enjoying a gilded age. The 1880s marked the emergence of one of the most iconic pieces of New York's history, the skyscraper. Depictions of these soaring wonders of steel and glass appear alongside the thriving waters surrounding Manhattan and the mid-rise residences. This uniquely American piece of architecture started in New York City and is among its most defining features.
This period also marked the annexation of surrounding cities and counties into what is now recognizable as the five boroughs. However, this map was produced two years before the conglomeration of the boroughs was made official.
Bird's eye perspectives were produced for merchants and residents alike to display their civic pride, and their striking aesthetic immediately places the viewer in the Tim and place they depict. These maps were never produced to scale and served to index notable buildings, gathering places or businesses. This was also a time that saw the development of another modern institution, the department store, which permanently reshaped the contemporary idea of service and luxury. This led to a burst of growth uptown and the creation of the so-called "Ladies Mile." Innovation and energy were bursting forth from New York in this time of great creativity.
