240year old map of NYC at NYtimes
Given the recent contest I thought you guys would find this interesting: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...l?ref=nyregion A restored 240 year old map of NYC.
Yeah, that's pretty cool. Thanks, man. I like the auto zoomer thingy in a separate window but I wanna download it so I look even closer.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

I figure a map that old must be out of copyright...

Very cool link and thanks RobA for the image we can look at as we are used to.

That's a very nice map. And over two hundred years old, it displays mild discoloration and some wear around the folds.

Wow - that's fabulous! Thanks for the link.
