Does anyone have a high quality (pdf) or any detailed map of central park?
I have found several online, but they are really small and most not of good quality. Thanks!

A very fine map. Though done on a computer, it recalls the style of good 19th Century cartography.

The Manhattan map below holds interesting possibilities- think if the "Eastern Post Road" had become the Broadway of the UES, or if "The Parade" had been built rather than Central Park. Not to mention "Jones' Wood" or "Bloomingdale Square".

I haven't seen any online with that quality.

Here's a zoom map of 1903 Manhattan
