Old New York - 1848 / 1849

 

Illustration of the City of New York, looking north from Trinity Church. Broadway is on the left and Wall Street is on the right. The original title is: New-York, in 1849, but the illustration, drawn by Edward B. Purcell, was registered by the engraver Stephen Weekes, in 1848, according to text on print. Publisher: Robert Sears (1810-1892).

Judging from the perspective, this illustration was taken from the tower of Trinity Church, then the tallest structure in the City. The tower was drawn a bit further north.
