MAP: Maps and Atlases The items in the gallery include "estate and farm" maps that illustrate how the 1811 grid plan sliced up the original farms and estates into lots suitable for development. Each map depicts a several block area in Manhattan. The Waterfront Survey Maps provide a comprehensive record of waterfront development in New York City. Aerial photographic survey maps trace development over time.
