New York State’s advancements in transportation were significant in the early 1800's. The first steamboat line was established in 1807. The Erie Canal opened in 1825.

Buffalo, located on the eastern shores of Lake Erie near the head of the Niagara River, was a small trading community before the Erie Canal opened, with Buffalo at its western terminus.

The canal enabled Buffalo to prosper and grow into a major port city and manufacturing center.

The additions to transportation in New York State during the 1830's and 40's, led to expanded settlement in western New York.Several railroad lines were added in the state during that time.

In 1854 Brooklyn annexed nearby Williamsburg.

This detailed map was published in 1839 by David H. Burr, late topographer to the post office, geographer to the United States House of Representatives. It shows drainage, relief, township and county boundaries, citie and towns, canals, roads, and railroads.

The inset map portrays city and county of New York, Brooklyn, Williamsburg and Jersey City.
