Additional Details

Viele's 1865 "Water Map", revised and greatly enlarged to nearly twice the size by Civil Engineer Eugene Quackenbush. "Twenty years of surveying and studying went into perfecting this great map, and during those years Viele gained an intimate knowledge of New York's physical makeup." (Cohen and Augustyn, Manhattan in Maps, pages 136-139). A fine example of this scarce later, larger edition of the map.
