U.S. Coast Survey of Bay and Harbor of New York (2 map set)
1874 - This is a two part un-joined map. This U.S. Coastal Survey map contains information about light houses and beacons, currents, light vessels, fog signals, and buoys. This map details Brooklyn, Jersey City, Hoboken, and part of Long Island. Outside nautical information, the map displays city grids, countryside, railroads, cemeteries, navy yards, ferries, and parks. This map was a collaborative effort and was prepared by J. Ferguson and E. Blunt; the topography by H. L. Whiting, S. A. Gilbert, A. M Harrison, F. W. Door, C. Rockwell and J. M E. Chan; and the hydrography was accomplished by R. Wainwright and T. A. Craven. Sandy Hook Bay, Raritan Bay, and the lower portions of Staten and Coney Island are included in the bottom portion o the map. The map provides sailing directions for Gedney's and Main Channels, South and Swash Channels, False Hook Channel, East Channel, and commentary for sailing through those locations. Current and tidal information is also shown. The map also illustrates geographic information for the surrounding countryside.
