On Exhibit in the Gallery until May 31, 2019: New Amsterdam To Metropolis Historic Maps of New York City 1548-1964 featuring maps, plans and views tracing the history of New York City, from the earliest European encounter with the region by Verrazano in 1524 to the skyscraper-bedecked city of the mid-twentieth century.
We here at Martayan Lan would like to thank our guest at our map gallery this past Monday evening, John Tauranac, for his many insights into creating maps of New York’s subway system as well into so many other aspects of physical New York City. And thanks also to everyone who attended the event; your interest, conversation and enthusiasm helped to make the evening a wonderful success.
For those of you who could not make it (or would like to revisit it!) Mr. Tauranac and map gallery partner, Robert Augustyn’s conversation is available to stream via YouTube.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
