I'm pretty new to this, but the idea of creating a map to play on tickled my fancy so I've created a map of New York City from ~1850-1900 based on the maps of cartographers Watson, Beers, and Johnson, among others. I'm interested in having it take on a Gangs of New York theme, as that story takes place during the same period (around 1863, coinciding with the Draft Riots). The territories, bonuses, and connections are all in place, but I'd love some feedback about some potential pitfalls, as I'm not terribly experienced and may not recognize things as easily. No distributions have been placed yet, but that is the next step, as well as player testing. Let me know if you're interested!
Also, given that many of the neighborhoods had not taken on distinct identities quite yet, I've taken some liberties with naming, but did my best to take hints from the maps I used.
Suggestions on color coding are also appreciated, I'm not quite sure how that should work.

Testers so far (need a few more!):
