Rapid Transit Map of Greater New York [circa 1924] Ohman Map Co ~ subways, elevated lines, ferries, ~ interboro & Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit


Item: [map] Rapid Transit Map of Greater New York

Description: Map measures approx. 15 x 9.5 inches. Small chip in the left margin, a couple other small tears at folds and two very small holes where folds intersect. Back side (blank) has some soiling and previous owner's name written on it.

The map (circa 1924) can be dated by the ''tunnel under construction,'' stretching between Staten Island (St. James) and Brooklyn (Bay Ridge). This Narrows Tunnel, which was also known as the Brooklyn-Richmond Freight & Passenger Tunnel, was never completed. The mayor broke ground for it in April 1923 and in 1925 the project was canceled, uncompleted.

The map shows interboro and Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit subway and elevated lines, highways, ferrys, railroads, Hudson Tubes, trolleys, and indicates periodical house numbers.
