Map on the Fly: A View of Midtown from the Village

I gathered this map together for my colleague who is exploring an interesting thesis about the nineteenth century New York gives a view of midtown from the Village with a TIN elevation surface. A caveat: the elevations are significantly exaggerated to show contrast. But I like the view. Data thanks to's Bytes of the Big Apple and NY State's GIS clearing house, map assembled in ArcView.
