NY & Brooklyn, 1877

From the Library of Congress comes this map of New York and Brooklyn with the Jersey City and Hoboken water front, published in 1877 by Currier & Ives. You can see the Brooklyn Bridge, but the other bridges to Brooklyn have yet to be built.

Some of the landmarks, from left to right: City Hall, Post Office, St. Paul's Church, Brooklyn Bridge, Trinity Church, Custom House, Bowling Green, South Ferry, Battery, Castle Garden, Staten Island Ferry.
