This beautiful old map of the Bronx, New York was created in 1921 by the Ohman Map Company of New York City. The map shows a bird’s eye view of the “Borough of Bronx” as it looked in the early 20th century. The red lines denote the subway routes throughout the Bronx.
The map was originally published by The Bronx Home News, an old Bronx focused newspaper. Landmarks on the map include Bronx Park, Fordham University, Harlem River, “The Hub” at 149th street, Crotona Park, Pelham Bay Park, Madison Avenue Bridge, Bronx Kills, Bronx Zoo, and more.
