Original Rare Old Historic Antique Nautical Chart showing New York Bay | Harbor 1857

One of the first charts published by the United States Coast Survey showing New York Bay and Harbor in its entirety.  This Chart was specifically published to show the changes in the surrounding shorelines to the Coast Survey of 1835 to 1836. The Coast Survey estimated that between these surveys, 1220 acres of land have been made on the Hudson and East Rivers alone, displacing nine million yards of Tidal space. This chart shows an amazing amount of detail including numerous soundings and bottom types. The chart covers from Throg’s Neck and Fort Schuyler to Sandy Hook and the Highlands. The chart also covers the entrance to the Raritan River and the Hudson to just north of Normansville. Also shown are the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Atlantic Dock, Owl’s Head, Fort Hamilton and Fort Lafayette.
