Commissioners' Plan of Manhattan, 1811


Rights Managed


Commissioners' Plan of 1811 for the island of Manhattan, laying out the famous grid pattern for the main streets of New York, USA. Commissioned in 1807, this map was published in 1811. North is towards upper right. The map shows ward boundaries and early parks. Central Park was not part of the original plan, but 'The Parade' (centre left) became Madison Square Park. The Hudson River (top) and East River (bottom) are labelled, as are Blackwell's Island (now Roosevelt Island) and Great Barn Island and Randell's Island (now Randalls and Wards Islands). The text at lower right consists of attestations by those publishing the map.
