CROSBY, Arthur. - Pictorial map of New York City. . .
New York, 1928
A lovely town plan of New York City, published by Arthur Crosby services, in 1928, on behalf of the Chase National Bank, which is very interesting, as the published date is the year of the great "Wall Street Crash", and the beginning of the "Great Depression".
The plan delightfully illustrates Point of Interest, Important Buildings, Institutions, Churches, Parks, Theaters, and famous Fifth Avenue Residences.
The local offices of the Chase National Bank, and its branches are illustrated in red, and their addresses are given.
There is also a box legend of 72 listed "Points of Interest" - they are coded and linked to a lettered and numbered grid system for locational purposes. Shipping of all kind is seen on the East River and the Hudson River. Aero-planes are also seen flying near a landing strip on Riverside Drive. Compass Rose. A nice item.
