Brooklyn 1886-1895 DVD & Prints

DVD - 738 Maps

This DVD contains all 738 Fire Insurance Maps for the City of Brooklyn, NY ca. 1895. We have acquired all 11 volumes from the Library of Congress and arranged them here for your convenient viewing. The files have been slightly “downsized” to fit onto one DVD, but all text is easily legible.
These maps are a valuable historical resource today as they show the building material (brick, wood, stone etc), location of nearby fire departments, and water lines in the streets. Commercial buildings are often labelled with their business use. The 11 volumes were created between 1886 and 1895 and cover most of the developed area of Brooklyn at the time.

Below we have posted all 58 maps from volume 1 as examples. They are also available for individual purchase. All of these maps, plus many more, are included on the DVD.

You can click the thumbnails below to view sample images of parts of these maps.
