Detailed map of College Point in Queens County, New York. Both the Long Island Sound and Powells Cove are visible. Frederick W. Beers (flourished 1858-1929) came from a family of surveyors, cartographers and publishers originally from Newtown Connecticut. F.W. Beers continued the work of his father James Botsford Beers and was known for his county survey maps of New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Connecticut and Vermont. Nice visual record of 19th century land ownership in Queens.
