This New York City map folds out from an 1893 Baedeker that was reprinted in 1899 and 1904: The United States with an Excursion to Mexico: Handbook for Travellers (written by J. F. Muirhead and published by Karl Baedeker, Publishers, Leipsic, 1893). Loy may have used such a Baedeker or map when she moved to New York in 1916.
