A rather humorous pictorial map of the United States from the perspective of a New Yorker. New York City, State and a portion of Long Island is shown in over sized proportion in relation to the entire country. Long Island is simply titled “Brooklyn” and in the middle is The 1939 New York World's Fair. Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds are noted as well. Many place names throughout the states are incorrect, for example, Minneapolis and Indianapolis are humorously shown together in Michigan and noted as “The Twin Cities.” Idaho is dot in Oregon and Wyoming a dot in Montana, which itself is located on the Pacific coast and borders on Alaska.
