  • Long Island City

    It is now an area full of neighborhoods such as Astoria, Hunters Point, Dutch Kills and Queens West, amongst others, but this folding map shows the area when from Rikers island to the Newtown Creek, it was all just Long Island City, bounded by neighboring Newtown. Just prior to the Queensborough bridge, the proposed area of the approach to the bridge is shown. A large “Blackwells Island” (present day Roosevelt island) is shown, but featureless.

    Condition is very good. Image size is 21.25 x 37.5 (inches).
