Maps of New York City - 18th Century

 

Notable maps were made in the 18th century, based on actual surveys by James Lyne, David Grim, Francis W. Maerschalck, Bernard Ratzer, John Montrésor, Gerard Bancker, Major Holland, Claude Joseph Sauthier and others. Land surveys in the City of New York were intensified during the 1770s, especially during the Revolutionary War (1775–83). Broadway was the main north–south artery of the City.

With the independence, New York was established as the capital of the new country, the United States of America. In 1789, George Washington was sworn in as the first president of the nation. New York also hosted the first meeting of Congress and the first sessions of the Supreme Court. In 1790, the nation's capital was transferred to Philadelphia.
