A print of New York/The Upper Bay from Lower Manhattan, 1935, by Leslie Ragan.

This poster shows a dramatic bird's-eye view of Battery Park, with New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and New Jersey in the background. Also visible are the roofs of the rectangular U.S. Custom House and the New York Produce Exchange, as well as a sliver of the 741-foot-tall City Bank-Farmers Trust Building on the left and the ziggurat-style pyramid roof of the Standard Oil Building. The view is based on a photograph taken on April 13, 1933, by Percy Loomis Sperr from the observation deck of the Cities Service Building at 70 Pine Street in Manhattan's Financial District. The building—originally known as 60 Wall Tower—was constructed between 1930 and 1932.
