Augustus Mitchell Jr. Shows political wards, roads, street names, parks, some buildings, military facilities, ferry routes and distances for Manhattan, parts of Hoboken, Jersey City, Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and part of Brooklyn.

New York harbor is protected from the ocean by Staten Island and the Brooklyn peninsula. It is much deeper than the harbor of Boston or Philadelphia and this became increasingly important as ship tonnage increased starting in the 1790s.
