Springfield, Mass: Nirenstein's National Realty Map Co., [1947]. Hardcover. An impressive atlas of maps of the downtown retail shopping districts of cities in the middle Atlantic states of New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia, with each city's businesses identified on every block. This was an invaluable guide to potential investors and store owners of the day.

One such store can be seen on the Brooklyn map, which shows Abraham & Straus, the emporium which opened in 1883 transforming downtown Brooklyn. At the same time this Atlas of the Middle Atlantic States was published, the New England city guide was being marketed at $200, the equivalent of $2,653 in 2017.

Accompanying text provides information on population, principal industries, department stores, drug stores, grocery stores, city transportation, highways, banks, utilities, schools and hospitals. Illustrations include b&w printed photographic aerial views of city centers, landmark buildings, libraries and colleges. A folding map of White Plains NY, showing Harchester Park, an office park development, loosely inserted.
