This is large map 1871 map of New York City's fire departments. Covering all of Manhattan, this map defines which fire battalions and brigades are in charge of each area. When Hardy issued this map there were but nine fire battalions in Manhattan. The locations of Fire Departments, Engine Houses, Hook & Ladder Houses, Repair Shops, Fuel Depots, Hospitals, and bell towers are all noted. In addition to Fire Commission information, this map also shows the proposed (and eventually realized) landfills along the Manhattan shorelines. The expansion of the Manhattan shore line eventually lead to the development of FDR Drive, the West Side Highway, and a greatly expanded Riverside Park. This map is brightly colored in pastels to further illustrate the various divisions. All streets are labeled. Published by John Hardy, Clerk of the Common Council, for the 1871 edition of the Manual of the Corporation of New York .
