View of New York and Vicinity showing Good - NEW YORK - NEW YORK CITY - BIRD'S E - 1925. 
George J. Nostrand. New York. No date. Ca. 1925. - Color map, lithograph, 19 5/8 x 29 1/2 inches on sheet 20 5/8 x 30 1/2 inches, originally issued folded, now professionally mounted on linen, minimising wear to fold lines. A striking bird's eye view of the New York area which was issued in several undated editions. This version dates to the late 1920s, showing as it does the George Washington Bridge (originally named the Hudson River Bridge). No ferries are marked above the bridge (unlike earlier versions). The area covered is from Far Rockaway and Port Chester at the right edge of the map to Mountain View and Newark at upper left and Richmond at lower left. The map is lithographed in attractive soft blues and browns, with a strong lithographic treatment of the sky and clouds. A colorful and fascinating wall display for residents or natives of the area.
