Deep-Zoom Image: The Five Points, 1827

The Five Points was a 19th-century neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It gained international notoriety as a densely populated, disease-ridden, crime-infested slum that existed for well over 70 years.

I’d been reading a history book about the Five Points and found a lithograph of a notorious intersection. I cleaned and up-sampled the image in Photoshop, and used a custom Bash script to run VIPs to create the image tile pyramid for the OpenSeaDragon JavaScript library.
