George Schlegel and George Degen : “Perspective Map of New York City” (c. 1873)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Published circa 1873, this perspective map of New York City looks northeast over Manhattan from Battery Park. It is not drawn completely to scale, but emphasizes points of interest, such as City Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and the newly constructed Brooklyn Bridge. During the 19th century, pictorial maps such these were a popular way for American towns and cities to attract business and immigration.
