Created by the New Amsterdam History (NAHC) Center, Mapping Early New York, is digital map with a time-slider linked to information from the Castello Plan of 1660.
The database includes information on families from detailed sources and connected with map features, particularly tax parcels.
The goal is to create a more modern and open way for the community to access the Castello Plan and the current contents of the NAHC database, and to allow for additions and eventual collaboration with other organizations.
Three phases are planned for the project: Establishment, Tax Lot Content & Mapping, and Comprehensive Tax Lot Information.
Phase 1 has been completed and NAHC is seeking funding to complete Phase 2 & 3.
