Mapping the Big Apple

WSJ – “A coming exhibition at the New York Public Library illustrates historical nuggets like these from the city’s 400-year history through images of its evolving shoreline. “Mapping New York’s Shoreline, 1609-2009,” which opens Sept. 25, features about 200 maps, prints and atlases mostly from the library’s collection. The show is one of many cultural events this year marking the 400th anniversary of Dutch explorer Henry Hudson’s arrival in what is now Manhattan.”
