Fascinating . . . great work as always!
Fascinating. It would be interesting to see comparable maps of world travel. For example, how long from New York to China in 1800.
Interesting question. If you were heading from China (or elsewhere) to the US, it probably took weeks just to get to a disembarkation point, then weeks on a ship (pre-steam engines, anyway). Leaving from NYC would cut out the first part and just leave the ocean part. If you run across any answers, please send them along!
