Exhibition Acknowledgments
Mapping New York’s Shoreline, 1609–2009 has been drawn primarily from The New York Public Library’s Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division and The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs. Additional materials were drawn from the General Research Division, Manuscripts and Archives Division, Irma and Paul Milstein Division of United States History, Local History, and Genealogy, and Rare Book Division, as well as from the Science, Industry and Business Library. We gratefully acknowledge a number of loans from a private collection.

Curator’s Acknowledgments
Alice C. Hudson would like to extend personal thanks to Jennifer Phoenix, Web Wheelock, and Sam Suratt, Map Division volunteers, for their continuous and dedicated research support. Thanks are due to Map Division staff members Matt Knutzen, for his work on digital and GIS mapping for the exhibition, and Nancy Kandoian, Teja Maganti, and Aikaterini Dimitriadou-Shuster, who produced metadata and catalog records for digital imagery of maps included in NYPL’s Digital Gallery.

For their ever-present support, heartfelt thanks to Research Coordinators Jeanne Bornstein and Kailen Rogers, who did so very much to keep everything accurate, on schedule, up to date, and in good order. Thanks also to their colleagues Elaine Charnov, Susan Rabbiner, Myriam de Arteni, Andrew Pastore, Caryn Gedell, and Jean Mihich. To exhibition designer Stephen Saitas, extreme gratitude for his patience, humor, and ingenuity, not to mention creativity in design and spatial relationships. And to Henk van Assen for his multiple, coordinated, and evolving graphic designs, which made us all smile. Thanks again to wordsmith Barbara Bergeron, who made sense of it all, and to Jen Lam, who let the world know about our exhibition.
