Broadway runs down by the middle, with the tower of Grace Church in evidence. Forth Avenue is on the left.

The fountain was built in 1842. The equestrian Washington Monument is already in place, although its dedication happened later, in 1856. The Church of the Puritans at 15th Street was designed by James Renwick, south of which was a collegiate institution for young ladies, maintained by the Reverend Gorham D. Abbott in the old Spingler Institute.
