Description Hand drawn map of Red Hook Channel (or Buttermilk channel). Landholders/farmers, ponds, roads, and other water features plotted including the East Riverm Governor's Island and Wallabout Bay. Time frame depicted is unclear, perhaps late-17th / early-18th century. Water features in blue watercolor. Coastline outlined in red.
