New York [City] Taken from Fort Columbus, Governors Island 1816

Striking view of New York City from Governors Island, as it appeared in 1816.
The view shows a harbor teaming with ships and commerce, with the fortifications at Fort Columbus illustrated, as it appeared at the close of the War of 1812, with soliders and fisherman in the foreground.
An early steam paddle wheel ship can be seen at the left, one of the earliest examples of such a vessel, which had only been introduced on the Mississippi River in 1812.
