Welcome to "My Favorite Historic Maps" page.
Here, you will find high resolution historic maps
with entirely legible details. Enjoy!
(although these maps are taken from a variety of sources, including my own photography, the best source, by far, is the
Library of Congress's "American Memory Maps Collection")
New York City and New Jersey
New York 1639-an extraordinary map with a legend of all of the residences, etc., in Dutch (5000 x 3300)
