Lith. by Ferd. Mayer & Sons, NYC. This very detailed chart of New York harbor shows the quarantine station located on Staten Island near Fort Tompkins. A series of distance rings radiating around it in are shown in 1 mile increments. The quarantine anchorage is shown in the lower bay, midway between Coney Island, Sandy Hook and Staten Island. The chart covers the area just north of Manhattan Island to Monmouth County in northern New Jersey and from Jamaica Bay to just west of Staten Island and Shrewsbury.
