    Default NY 1930 map...

    Not sure if i'm posting on the right place, but i want to ask you a 1910~1950 map of New York city (i'm not asking for a mapmaking but for a historical map or something like that). On a web site, on a book, if u know tell me where i can find it.

    The reason for this is because in the future (after i finish my fantasy map and novel) i want to write one about the mafia on New York (fictional not a true story) as i don't live there, and have never been there i need to about the places, streets from some years before.

    try going back through the challenge threads - there were a New York challenge around november and I seem to remember a handfull of links to historical maps of New York. Also Immolates map of Central Park fits that era perfectly

    If you google 1910, 1920, etc New York Map, quite a few come up. If you do the search as an image search, you'll get thumbnail previews of everything. Hope this helps.
