Where was New York's Five Points?

Mr. Mullins stated that the Five Points existed at the intersection of "Worth, Baxter, and Park Row". This would lie in today's Chinatown. He was close! There is no such intersection. Park Row does not intersect with Baxter.

The Five Points can be found where Baxter intersects with Worth (formerly known as Anthony St). If you follow Worth east, you'll hit Park (formerly known as Chatham).

Answer

Original 5 pts was the intersection of Worth, Baxter, Mosco, and Pearl Street, which use to run through the Federal Court House. The location is presently known as Columbus Park in China Town.

Answer

Only two of the three streets that made up the Five Points intersection still exist--Worth and Baxter. The third is not Park Row, but the now-buried Park Street, which used to run from the Five Points, across Pearl Street and to the intersection of Lafayette and Centre streets. It ran under what is now a courthouse.

Answer

Five Points was made by the intersection of three streets: Worth, Baxter, and Park (now Mosco).

Around 1900, the tenements were torn down to make way for Mulberry Bend Park (now Columbus Park) and several courthouses.

Answer

At Old World NYC there is a digital map showing where the old streets were and what the present area looks like.

How do contour maps show areas of shallow gradient?

Contour maps have lines along points at the same height or elevation. The contours are usually drawn at regular intervals, such as every 10 or 50m of height change.
Where contour lines are very close on a map, this shows that the height is changing a great deal over a short horizontal distance, and therefore the gradient is steep.
Areas of shallow gradient will have contour lines that are a long way apart, showing that points that are a set distance apart in height are a large distance apart horizontally.
