Historic Map - Brooklyn, NY - 1897

Bird's-eye-view of the borough of Brooklyn showing parks, cemeteries, principal buildings, suburbs. Geo. Welch.

Reproduction bird's-eye view map of Brooklyn, New York, drawn by Geo. Welch and published by The Brooklyn Daily Eagle in 1897. In 1645, Lady Deborah Moody led a group of religious dissenters to the area of Brooklyn and founded the town of Gravesend in the Dutch colony of New Netherland. Lady Moody was a Anabaptist who'd left England due to religious persecution. Lady Moody got along well with New Netherland governor Peter Stuyvesant and Gravesend citizens were granted religious freedom. The Dutch West India Company authorized the village of Brooklyn in 1646, naming it after Breuckelen, a province of Utrecht. The Dutch set up their trade network here, but soon lost Brooklyn to the British. The British ruled the area until the end of the American Revolution. They used New York as their military base of operations during the war and held American patriot prisoners aboard their rotting prison-ships in Wallabout Bay. More patriot prisoners died on these ships than in all battles of the war. In the late1800s Brooklyn's East River population grew with the annexation of Williamsburgh, New Lots, Flatbush, Gravesend and New Utrecht. The map was published one year after the town of Flatlands joined the city. The Brooklyn Bridge was completed in 1883, linking Brooklyn with Manhattan. One year after the map's publishing Brooklyn was designated as one of New York City's five boroughs.

This panorama map from 1897 shows parks, cemeteries, principle buildings and suburbs.
