A detailed map by one of leading American cartographic firms of the early twentieth century. New York had become the center of American map publishing in the middle of the nineteenth century. Towards the end of the century much of the cartographic industry moved to Chicago and other cities, but the Hammond firm kept New York as an important center of map-making. This map is typical of the company’s output, with accurate and clearly presented topographical detail.  Most of the existing railroads are carefully depicted and identified by color.
