This attractive tinted lithograph was produced by George Hayward and featured in Valentine's Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York for 1862. The manual was a directory with extensive historical and contemporary records related to New York, including ordinances, lists of public officials, ferry schedules, and the directories of hospitals and schools. David Valentine published the manual with updated editions annually from 1841-66. This view was based on the work of Archibald Robertson and shows various sailing vessels in New York Harbor with the city skyline in the background.
