The Kings County line at the West Pond of Jamaica Bay.

Periodically there is discussion about the county lines at the West Pond of the Jamaica Bay wildlife refuge. The corner of the pond is in Brooklyn (Kings County). Below is the relevant portion of the refuge map published many years ago by the refuge when it was still under the auspices of the New York City Parks Department. If anyone is wondering about the accuracy of the map I will point out it was drawn by Richard Edes Harrison, one of the foremost cartographers of the 20th Century and a renowned NYC birder.
