Add a one-line explanation of what this file represents


An 1879 map of Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York. New York, USA. This map plots existing property lines and structures from that time period and shows the then still existent "Coney Island Creek'. It also contains an overlay (doted lines) showing a proposed change/expansion of the street "grid" that would follow a planed filling and dredging of Coney Island Creek to make a Gravesend Ship Canal running in an almost straight line east to west. The plan was abandoned but the eastern half of Coney Island Creek was eventually filled in by land owners and city development projects.[1][2]

Map stitched together from [1].
