NYPL Digital Gallery

The NYPL Digital Gallery features a wide breadth of historical documents and images. Some of those included are historical maps of of 1700-1800 Manhattan, featured left and right.

The gallery is absolutely worth browsing through. While not as fun as flipping through the archives of a library, smelling the old bindings or feeling the crispness of the sheets of paper, the gallery is the next best thing. You might find something that inspires you in there.
