1945 "Supervue of New York City"

This bird’s eye view of New York City was published in 1945 by the Supervue Map and Guide Organization. The map shows the roads and major points of interest, which, coupled with a detailed index surrounding the map, helps tourists locate key attractions, historical sites, steamship piers, parks and squares, and bridges.

The map was originally issued folded into printed paper covers with black and white photographic images of the city. On the verso of the map are small black and white maps of the major roads and highways leading to Manhattan, a plan of the shopping district, and subway and public transit maps. 

The map extends from Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and Governors Island in the south to Van Cortlandt Park and Botanical Garden. 


A clean and bright example, issued folding with light wear along the folds. The paper covers have creases and tiny splits along the edges.

Map has been archival framed with acid-free mats and backing, an olive green linen covered spandrel, UV Conservation Clear glass, and a custom-built black wooden frame. 

Framed Dimensions:  31 1/2 H x 21 3/4 W x 1 1/2 D
