Panorama of New York and Vicinity - 1866


Panoramic illustration of New York, showing the southern part of Manhattan Island, Brooklyn, in the distance, and Jersey City, in the foreground. This was New York a couple of years before the race to build skyscrapers. The Civil War had ended in 1865 and New York was thriving again. The hippest place in Manhattan was then the area around City Hall Park.
