Richmond Hill 
Real Estate Map from 1905
There have been practically no changes in the street layout since the original map was drawn in 1905. There have been street widenings here and there, such as Lefferts Boulevard, Van Wyck Expressway, etc. but for the most part, Richmond Hill has left its streets as they were designed a century ago.

Below is a rough rendering from the original 1905 Real Estate Map of Richmond Hill issued by C. M. Hillman Realtor. The map shows the many communities that once co-existed with Richmond Hill until they were all consolidated later into Richmond Hill with the exception of Ozone Park which still exists south of Richmond Hill.
