    The world before us: mapping Mannahatta(n)
    From The New Yorker: Eric Sanderson is a landscape ecologist who is trying to determine exactly how Manhattan—or Mannahatta, “land of many hills,” as some scholars have translated the name used by the Lenape people who inhabited it—looked before the arrival of Europeans.



    Lower Manhattan, juxtaposed with the outline of the island today.




    Manhattan as it might have looked in 1609. The island has been expanded by landfill over the course of four centuries.

    One the most beautiful Goddamn cities in the world when shot from the air. Still takes my breath away.

    I can't wait til I see it for myself next year ... it's amazing how much land mass we added.

    This is quite amazing, to see such vast development and extension of the land itself around Mannhattan and surrounding. Nice find, Folkert.
