This composite image splits Manhattan into two visions; how it looked in 1609, left; its more vertical profile today, right.
I'd love to see this blown up huge, and placed in Times Square. This is from an article in today's Times about the exploration of NYC. A quick excerpt before you get to whatever else you were doing:
Mr. Sanderson writes Mannahatta had more ecological diversity than Yellowstone, more native plant species than Yosemite, more species of birds than the Great Smoky Mountains.
“If Mannahatta existed today as it did then, it would be a national park,” Mr. Sanderson writes. “It would be the crowning glory of American national parks.”
