I love the much larger original hand colored and tinted lithograph from 1858. It's such an unusual bird's eye view that simulates a wide angle lens of Brooklyn / City of New York / Williamsburg. Before any bridges spanned the East River.

We did the photoshoot on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village. As we were snapping away, a kid stopped in front of Josh, and told him, "You want to shoot something? Shoot this." He then turned around, pulled down his pants and mooned us. Salutations.
