Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Fun time-suck! Thanks for sharing. I lived in NYC back in the mid-70's.
But I think the link to the actual page is this one: http://nyclpc.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=93a88691cace4067828b1eede432022b

I was born in NYC and lived in the Bronx until I was 10. I've lived within 50 miles of NYC my whole life, so I will enjoy exploring this map. Thanks for posting the link.
