    this is stolen from the Skyscraper site.

    you may want to go check the page its on, because there is a pop-up javascript function that opnes the midtown and downtown links. those are very cool axonometric views.

    That's really interesting!! I wish they did these things for other cities, it's always interesting to know what was there before you.

    the site has a lot of intersting things going on.



    Seeing nyc as farm land is so crazy, and odder is that it seems none of the present streets following any of the old borders.
