New York City, West Side, W. 14th - 19th St., Avenue of the Americas, 7th Ave
Original Sanborn Fire Insurance map showing the area of West Fourteenth, Fifteenth and Sixteenth Streets between the Avenue of the Americas and 7th Ave on plate 28. The reverse of the map (double sided map) shows West Sixteenth thru Nineteenth Streets between the Avenue of the Americas and 7th Ave. This map was created in 1921 and updated through the 1970s. It is a little rough because it was used and updated on a regular basis by insurance companies and banks to assess the risk involved in lending and insuring. Every time something changed, i.e. a building was torn down, modified or a new one built, the old information would be covered over with a cut out of the new information, and these were called updates. Edges worn, old repairs, paper wavy from glued on updates. Map measures 17.5 × 26.″ Ships flat in box.
