This is a historic map of the cities of New York and Brooklyn, as they were in 1873, showing intricate street webs, as well as a portion of the Long Island City. It will be the perfect wall decor for anyone who absolutely adores The Capital of the World. This already beautiful piece of decor is further enhanced by gold leaf, a technique our skilled artists use to enhance compositions and transform them into stunning pieces of art. Thin leaves of real copper are carefully applied to paper and then sealed to protect against tarnishing, intensifying the visual impact of the work of art. Display this map prominently and see the full effect of mixed mediums, paper, ink and precious metal come to life!
