Real Estate Record and Builders Guide,

$ How to Use the Guide,
The leading purpose of this work is supply the vast masses of the
constantly moving multitudes visiting or inhabiting the Empire City
with information arranged in a simple and com pact form and showing
most direct and convenient routes of transit between all the central points.
A little study of the map, in connection with the tables, will enable
one to select the route most eligible between any two points located on
or near the various railroads traversing and intersecting the different
streets. The map is drawn on a scale sufficiently large to give a clear
conception of the topography of the City its length, if joined together,

would equal nearly three feet. The many advantages secured by reason
of its division into sections are obvious.
There are forty-niue squares on Section 4 of the map, drawn to a scale
of one mile each. The squares on the remaining three sections are
one-half mile each in each direction. They may be considered as
grouped in series, those described by the horizontal red lines being
numbered from 1 to 6, beginning at the top and continuing to the
bottom of each section, while those embraced within the series of
vertical lines are indicated by
beginning with A, and continuing
uniformly to Y, through the four sections. Every square in the four
sections of the map is thus indexed with a letter and figure, giving to
each of the 157 squares, comprising this portion of the work, its index
character, thus — —
A 1, A 2 B 1, B 2 etc. These characters are always

used when referring to the location of Streets, Piers, Ferries, Hotels, etc.
The streets of the City below 133d Street are tabled in alphabetical
order on the back of the sections. The " Map Square," showing where
each street begins and ends, follows its title, making a complete index to
every street corresponding to its location on the map. For example, to
find in its alphabetical order Hudson Street, it will be seen that it begins
at square "C 3," and ends at square "F 2." By reference to these
index characters its exact location is determined at once.
The "Street Car Routes" arj systematically classed, each one of the
twenty-five Lines being indexed with the letters A to Y, inclusive (see
pages 52 to 55). The order in which each line traverses the various
streets is there accurately shown in a clear and comprehensive manner.
The " Elevated R.R. Stations " below 155th Street (see page 48) are
numbered from 1 to 67, inclusive. In the tables of Ferries, R.R. Depots,
Steamship Lines, Piers, Places of Amusement, Hotels, etc., the map
square, showing their location on the map, the numbers indicating the
nearest Elevated R.R. Station and the letters designating the nearest
Car Route, are placed opposite to each. For example, under heading
"Theatres and Places of Amusement," if it is desired to find the Fifth
Avenue Theatre, the index character "G3," in map square column,
shows its location on the map the letters " B-H-N," under column

headed Street Car Routes, refer to the Broadway (" B "), the Grand and
Forty-Second Street (" H "), and the Sixth Avenue (" N ") Street Car
Lines respectively, as immediately passing or near the Theatre, while
the figures " 2o-6th," in column of Elevated R.R. Stations, shows the
number and line of the nearest Elevated Station to such Theatre.
The street numbers at any point, on all the leading streets below
155th Street, running the length of the Island, in a northerly or southerly
direction, may be closely located by reference to the large table on

49 to 51. The general system adopted of numbering the numerical

cross streets is explained at introduction to Street Directory, page 8.

For convenience of reference the Streets and Avenues of the City are
arranged in condensed tabular form as shown on opposite page. Atten-
tion is called to the reference squares, A 1, B 2, etc., on the map, which,
with the exception of the fourth section, describe actual distances of
one-half mile each in either direction. The squares on section four
measure one mile across.
Fifth Avenue from Waverly Place to the Harlem River, a distance ol
about 6£ miles, is taken as a central line, dividing the city into East and
West. The house numbers on the numerical cross streets from 13th
Street to 133d Street begin at Fifth Avenue and run East and West,
beginning a new hundred at each avenue whether the prior hundred has
been filled out or not. The odd numbers are on the northerly or upper
sides of these streets, and the even numbers on the lower sides.
All of the avenues run north and south, the majority of them the whole
length of the island. They are designated as First, Second, and up to
Twelfth avenues, with an additional series known as Avenues A, B, C
and D. They are nearly uniformly one-eighth mile apart with the
exception of Lexington and Madison Avenues, which are situated between
Third and Fourth and Fourth and Fifth Avenues respectively. The
numbering of the avenues begins south and increases as they run north,!
East Houston Street forming the most southerly boundry line of thejj
majority of them. The table on pages 49 to 51 will enable one to closely
locate the house number on any avenue desired.
Distances between any two points in the city on the first three sections
of the map can be readily determined by using the " distance and tim
scale," one of which accompanies each copy of this work. Should it b
desired, for example, to go from Union Square to the Battery, the seal
would indicate i\ miles. The official schedule time in going this distanc
on the street cars is also shown thereon to average 28 minutes.
The scale will show at a glance the distance between any two parts of
the city and the corresponding average amount of time consumed in

traveling such distances on the lines of the elevated railroads, street

cars, etc.
The average gait of a person walking is about three miles per hour.
Ten minutes would therefore be required to walk across any of the half
mile distances described by the squares, into which the first three sections
of the map are divided.
The streets and avenues north of 133d Street and in the annexed dis-

trict will be found tabulated on pages 21 to 29.

From the Discovery of Manhattan Island in 1524 to 1891.

The following compilation of the principal events connected with

the history of the City of New York is taken from the most reliable
sources obtainable. It is based wholly upon official figures and historical
records of unquestioned authenticity. The information given, while
necessarily condensed and abridged, will be found to cover every impor-

Nov. Grand Centennial Celebration in honor of the Evacu-
ation of the city by the British.The President and nine Governors,
with 40,000 soldiers, marines, firemen, veterans, policemen, Grand
Army Posts, sailors, societies and municipal representatives, were in
line, notwithstanding the fact that a cold, drizzling rain prevailed.
The march were lined with spectators for
streets along the line of
miles. It was estimated
between 600,000 and 700,000 visitors
came to the city for the occasion. A magnificent water parade on
both rivers preceded the land display. The exercises of the day
ended with banquets, entertainments, etc., in different parts of the
city, by the various leading representative societies.
1889 Centennial Celebration of the Inauguration of George Washing-
ton as first President of the United States. The city gave itselfup
completely for three days, April 29th, 30th, and May 1st, in honor
of the event. It is estimated that 3,000,000 strangers visited the city
during the celebration.
April 29th. The day opened gloriously with the reception of the
President and his Cabinet. In the Naval Parade, which followed,
the harbor was filled with over a thousand vessels all gorgeously
festooned, beautifully decorated and crowded with people, the shores
and piers, radiant in red, white and blue, being alive with the multi-
tudes. The Centennial Ball in the evening eclipsed any similar affair

ever held in this country and was equal in grandeur, brilliancy, and ihe
splendor of its appointments, to the most famous of European court

balls. The Metropolitan Opera House was transformed into a veri-

table bovver of roses, azaleas, lilies and ferns the ballroom was a

marvel of light and color with its thousands of incandescent electric

lamps in red, white and blue, and innumerable gas jets adding to
the effectiveness of the scene. The expense of this ball was about
$100,000. Ten thousand persons were present. From the magnifi-
cence of the ladies' costumes, the marvelous blaze of diamonds,
together with the rare congregation, representative of the wealth,
beauty and intellect of the nation, it certainly merited the criticism
itreceived when it was described as the " Greatest Ball of the Cen-
April 30th. The Military Parade was one of the grandest affairs
of its kind ever witnessed ; eleven miles of richly uniformed soldiers,
with delegations from 700 Grand Army Posts, representing nearly
every State in the Union, headed by their respective Governors and
Staffs, were in the line, forming a procession of impressive pomp

and glittering pageantry never before equalled. A conservative

estimate of the number immediately on the line of
of sightseers
march placed it at fully 1,000,000 persons. For the " window
privileges " of one building on the route $5,000, was refused, while
$500 was frequently paid for the use of one window for the two days.
The streets at four different points along the line were spanned with
magnificent triumphal arches. The concert in the Madison Square
Garden by the combined voices of forty-six of the leading singing
societies of the city, accompanied by a grand orchestra and terminat-
ing with the singing of America by 100,000 or more of the assembled

The information -given below is derived entirely from official sources,

brought down to the year 1S91. It is only intended to present a few
prominent facts in the most condensed form possible, illustrating the
City's remarkable development. History records nothing to com-
pare with the magnificent exhibits of industrial progress here presented.

CORPORATE The corporate limits of the City embrace an area of nearly

LIMITS. 40 X 3 square miles, Manhattan Island containing 13,463
acres and the annexed district, 23d and 24th Wards, 12,317 acre°. New
York Harbor, which is conceded to be the finest in the world, contains

an area of 102 square miles of safe anchorage 88 miles in the lower
bay and 14 miles in the upper bay. The available water frontage meas-
ures 24^4 miles 13 miles on the Hudson River 9J4 miles on the East

River, and 2 1 2 miles on the Harlem River.

POPULATION. The present population of the City, based upon the enum-
eration made by the police in the month of September, 1890, under a unani-
mous resolution of the Common Council, was found to be 1,710,715. The U.
S. Federal Census, taken in the month of June, returned only 1,513,101
inhabitants. About one-half of the residents of the City live below 14th
Street. In the Tenth Ward, within an area of a square mile, 290,000
persons are housed. The City's population is increasing at the rate of
60,000 annually. an enumeration were taken of the persons residing

within a circle described by a radius extending from the City Hall to the
northern boundary line of the corporate limits of the City, the population
of the " Metropolis" would largely exceed 3,000,000 persons.

ASSESSED In the magnitude and influence of her many commer-

VALUATION, Ac. cial and industrial enterprises reaching out to the
most remote sections of the country, stimulating and giving vitality to
the commerce of the whole world ;
in the vast aggregation of her corpor-
ate wealth ; in the concentration and availability of her moneyed re-
sources, over $1,000,000,000 being deposited in her different financial in-
stitutions, and in the notable accumulations of individual wealth, New
York stands without a peer. There are between 50,000 and 60,000 ac-
tive business firms in the City. Four thousand of her business houses are
rated at $75,000 each, and upwards, classified as follows 350 at $1,000,-

000 and over, 400 at from $500,000 to $1,000,000, 3,000 at from $100,-—
000 to $500,000, and the remainder, nearly 250, at $75,000 each and over.
Between one and two hundred of her citizens have annual incomes ex-
ceeding $250,000 each. Within the area bounded by Reade.West Broadway,
Spring and Crosby Streets, comprising about 130 acres, the wholesale
dry goods houses are mainly located. In no city in the world can be found,
within an equal space, a greater quantity of valuable merchandise, which
has an estimated value of over $500,000,000. The average sales of some
of her leading dry goods, grocery and hardware houses is nearly $1,000,-
000 per week. The assessed valuation of her real estate is $1,466,849,-
000, and of personal property about $300,000,000. This total sum of real
estate and personal property exceeds, by over one hundred million dol-
lars, the combined assessed valuation of the five States and three Terri-

tories comprising the Pacific Coast Region. The estimated actual market

besides Superior, Supreme, U. S., criminal courts, etc. 63,634 miles of
streets are cleaned each year. The number of cartloads of ashes, etc.,
collected yearly by the Street Cleaning Department is 1,928,000, the
annual cost for which is $1,279,000. The city receives $1,600,000 annu-
ally through the Dock Department for leased wharves, land under water,
etc. Nearly 30,000 licenses are issued yearly by the Licensed Bureau for
expresses, coaches, peddlers, etc., yielding a yearly revenue of $112,000.
There are 770 streets, 168 avenues, 138 places, with numerous alleys,
courts, lanes, squares, etc. The city contains 365 miles of paved and 40
miles of unpaved streets, and 438 miles of sewers. There are 337,316
tenement houses in the city. The foreign countries of the world are rep-
resented by 43 consuls. There are 150 fire insurance companies, includ-
ing the agencies of foreign and domestic companies, whose capital is rep-
resented here ; the available funds thus pledged against fire losses is

enormous. The marine, life, accident and mutual benefit insurance com-
panies of the city (with the agencies represented here) number fully loo
more. The assets of three of the principal life insurance companies of
the city aggregate the enormous sum of $382,346,000 they have risks ;

outstanding of $1,928,228,000, insuring, approximately, 484,000 lives at

an average of nearly $4,000 each.

WATER. The new Croton Aqueduct, just completed, is the most co-
lossal engineering structure of its kind in the world. This stupendous
work commences at Croton Lake, forming a part of the Croton Water
Shed, which has an area of 339 square miles of never failing lakes,
streams and springs of the purest water. A magnificent Gate House is
constructed at the southern extremity of the Lake, from which point the
Aqueduct leads to the Gate House in 135th street, a distance of 30! miles.
The Aqueduct is 14 feet in diameter and built mostly in tunnel. The
water coming through this equivalent to a stream having a width of 50

feet and a depth of 10 feet, flowing 59 feet per minute, with a maximum

capacity of 318,000,000 gallons of water every 24 hours. As many as

10,000 men have been employed upon work at one time. The

amount of material excavated and the masonry used in its construction

would build a wall 100 feet high and over 5 feet thick around Manhattan
Island, a distance of nearly 30 miles. From 135th street, the water is

conveyed in four rows of 48 inch mains to the Lake in Central Park.

The average depth of the tunnel is 170 feet. At 180th street, where it is
carried under the Harlem River it was found necessary to sink the same
419 feet below the surface, through solid rock in places. The distribution
system includes 693 miles of water mains 8,500 fire hydrants, and ;

nearly 20,000 water meters. The total cost ot the old and new Aqueduct
and Works, comprising the Croton Water service, up to January 1st,
1891, exceeded $72,000,000, of which $24,767,000 has been expended
upon the new Aqueduct begun in January, 1885, and into which water was
admitted in July, 1890. To this there will soon be added a sum exceeding

of the seven parks belonging to the city and is one of the most beautiful
natural parks in the world. Nearly one-fourth, or about 1,180 acres of
the public parks, are south of the Harlem River. In Central Park, which
has cost the City over $20,000,000, over 500,000 trees, shrubs, etc., have

000,000. The average daily clearings exceed $145,700,000, being nearly
65^ of the total exchanges of the whole country. The Association was
incorporated in 1853 its clearings for the thirty-seven years of its or-

ganization have avenged over $80,000,000 per day, which exceeds 80

percent, of the total exchanges of the whole country. Thsre are thirty-
six additionalBanks not belonging to the Clearing House, besides 176
Private Banks and Bankers. There are over 772,000 depositors in the
twenty-seven Savings Banks in the City, having on deposit an average

cross the bridge, which is about 110,000 per day. With the completion
of the improvements in the terminals, now under way, the bridge cars
alone will be able to carry 50,000 persons each way hourly. The daily
receipts from tolls alone exceed $2,800, or over $1,000,000 per annum.
The aggregate number of persons crossing the bridge up to January
1st, 1891, was 180,700,000. The President of the Board of Trustees es-
timates that within ten years the annual travel over the bridge will ex-
ceed 96,000,000 persons, yielding a yearly net profit of $1,770,000. The
total receipts from all sources from the date of opening to January 1,

1 891, amounted to $6, 800,000; $367, 200 of this sum was derived, principally

from rentals of warehouses located under the approaches of the super-

structure. The yearly travel on the lines of the sixteen different ferry
companies, which keep constantly running over 100 boats on the different
routes in the two rivers between New York and the cities opposite, will
exceed 150,000,000 persons. The lines operated by the Union Ferry
Company alone carry nearly 36,000,000 passengers, while the boats of
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company to Jersey City carry about 25,000,-
000 persons annually. The various other lines carry in nearly the same
proportion. The boats on the two rivers cross to and fro over 4,000
times daily. Between 40,000 and 50,000 persons arrive and depart from
the Grand Central Railroad Depot in 42d street every day, or say 16,500,-
000 per annum. When the improvements now under way are finished
the capacity of the depot will be increased sufficiently to handle 75,000
passengers daily, or 27,000,000 a year. The grain elevator of this com-
pany, at the foot of West Sixtieth Street, is worthy of note, being one of

largest and best equipped in the world. Seventy men can load or unload
three hundred cars of grain here in a single day.
Among the terminals of the various railroads leading to the city, those
of the Erie Company atWeehawken, now approaching completion, are
among the most notable. The company's piers will have an area of
545,000 square feet. There will be 822,000 cubic feet of storage room
under cover, and two miles of vessels can load and unload at the piers
at one time. The yards containing the railroad tracks connected with
the piers will have a capacity for holding 2,200 cars.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has also under construction and
nearly completed, at Jersey City, the largest passenger station and one of
the finest R. R. terminals in the world. About $3,500,000 of the com-
pany's earnings are being invested here in various improvements. The
passenger station proper will consist of a single arched iron roof, 90 feet
in height, 652*0 ^ eet ^ on S an ^ 2 5^ feet in width along the river front;
this is exclusive of thewaiting room and ferry accommodations, which
are of immense proportions and built in the most substantial manner.
The Central Railroad Company of New Jersey has recently spent
large sums, both in this City and Jersey City, in the improvement of its

terminal facilities, etc. Its new train shed at the latter place, recently
completed, is an immense structure, being 512 feet long, 215 feet wide
and 70 feet in height.
The Long Island R. R. Co. has also been forced to accommodate it-

self to the increasing tide ofpatronage and has just completed at


Long Island City (Hunters Point) a magnificent depot which has but
few equals. Its exterior dimensions are 105x215 feet and its cost over
There are seventeen lines of railroads running from the City through the
suburban districts, the travel upon which is enormous. It is estimated that
54,000 commuters, living within a distance of 20 miles from the City,
regularly travel on these lines. This amount of travel requires the
constant service of 800 cars and 160 locomotives. The average

A distinguishing feature of the city's social life is strikingly illustrated
in the number of its clubs and the luxuriousness of their surroundings.
In this respect New York City stands preeminent, not even excepting the
establishments of the older European cities. It is conservatively esti-

mated that the value of the leading club plants of the city will exceed
$25,000,000. The following list includes the names and addresses of all
the leading clubs, and some which may not be rated as first class, but

dustrial and political organizations, which do not appear here.

This magnificent structure, which is said to be one of the

most beautiful
bridges in the world, crosses the Harlem River and
the tracks of the
New York Central and Hudson River Railroad at Tenth Avenue and 181st
map Square "T 2."
Street, see Its total length is 2,375 feet, and its clear
height above high water, 152 feet 4 inches The total width of road-
way is 80 feet — 50 feet being used for the carriage-way, the sidewalks
taking up 15 feet on either side of the same. Work on the Bridge was
commenced in July, 1886; it was finished in December, 1888, and opened
to the public in 1889. Its total cost was nearly $3,000,000—/. e.,

$2,851,684.55. An average of 500 men were constantly employed upon

the work during its construction. The two main central arches, each
being 510 feet span, are superb examples of modern engineering skill,

wherein sections of steel are combined and keyed into arches in the
same manner as stone arches are built. The seven side arches, four on
the west and three on the easterly section, are of granite.

(See illustration on page 77.)

This mighty cataract, which is located four hundred and forty-seven

miles from New York, at the western terminus of the New York Central
and Hudson River Railroad, is the most inspiring natural wonder known to

man, and the objective point of tourists from the most remote parts of the
earth. The Niagara River, extending from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, a
distance of thirty miles, forms the outlets of Lakes Superior, Michigan,
Huron and Erie. The total fall of the river is three hundred and thirty-

four feet, the greater part of the descent being confined within a distance

of seven or eight miles. The rapids are so strong two miles above the
falls as to entirely prevent navigation. There are three distinct cataracts

The Horseshoe Falls, so called from its crescent shape, is by far the

largest, and is in the direct course of the river ; it is two thousand feet

wide and one hundred and fifty-four feet high. The American Fall is six

hundred and sixty feet wide, and the Central Fall two hundred and
forty-three feet, each having a fall of one hundred and sixty-three feet.

In 1885 the State of New York acquired by purchase all the property

on the American side adjacent to the falls, including Prospect Park, and
it is now open free to the public. In 1888 the lands adjacent to the falls

on the Canadian side were finally opened to the public after their acqui-

sition by the Dominion Government. The New York Central maintains

a magnificent service of ten fast express trains between New York and
Niagara Falls every day in the year.
