Bird’s Eye View of the City of New York.

Anonymous chromo lithograph showing the Island of Manhattan in its center from an angular aerial position.
Manhattan’s buildings details are nicely define, not just as a plan but each building showing its architectural specifications, windows, roof tops etc. Same is true of the buildings of Brooklyn, Jersey City and Hoboken.

In the foreground we are looking at Governors-Island and a busy News York harbor with plenty of sail ships, paddle steamers and sailboats. To the left we are looking at the Hudson River, to the right  we see the East River with spectacular Brooklyn Bridge spanning it. When it opened in 1883 it was the first fixed crossing of the East River and, world-wide, the longest suspension bridge, 1595 feet (486 m) long: An impressive piece of architecture!

What makes this view of New York so special is the artist’s dedication to detail. Unfortunately the chromo lithograph does not reveal the name of the artist, nor the publisher or the printing date. Since Brooklyn Bridge shows as finished architecture, we may assume that this spectacular view was printed in the mid 1880ies. We may also assume that it was printed in New York, probably  as a commissioned piece of art, maybe by a N.Y. galerist.

Condition: The chromo lithograph is mounted on cardboard, a happy circumstance which helped to keep it unfolded. The lithograph has a transparent glossy surface, which protected it through all these years. Age has slightly darkened the original color. Condition specifics worth mentioning: Lower right margin corner is bent backward, only the extreme corner missing - however not interfering with image. There are minor scratches in the glossy surface and some other minor traces of age and use. The upper margin has two holes with a string going through them. Probably still the original cord for hanging the lithograph on a wall. All four margins have suffered some rubbing. In general this large spectacular half bird’s eye view of New York City is in better than good condition.
