This amazing map is a bird's eye view of Manhattan drawn sometime around 1908 or 1909. The Singer building is shown (competed in 1908) but the Met Life Tower in Madison Square is missing (completed in 1909).
Right click to zoom in - you can the roundhouse at Battery Park, the arch in Washington Square Park, and even the Brooklyn meadow that later became Prospect Park.
