Not much has changed since , at least in terms of what 's call their neighborhoods.
The "Lower West Side" is and "Lower Broadway" is now the area.
and seem to have melted into each other some, and into the .
, too. And I've never heard anyone refer to any part of as , but this
was printed almost 40 years ago, and I don't get up that ways too often...

Now this is some exciting material. As opposed to the last , virtually none of this exists
in today's , either spatially or logistically. Except, of course, the likes of ,
the , the ,the
station and the and street stations in one form or another...

Missing a neighborhood in Manhattan. Marble Hill was once a part of Manhattan Island but a river realignment project severed it and a fill project attached it to the Bronx. Marble Hill still legally a part of NY county - the only part of Manhattan that isn't an island.

ahh, true. i heard that happened due to a ww1-era -widening project to assist with industrial/barge traffic (despite the bridge's annoyingly low-clearance). i used to row past there every morning of the world at 5:30am on the dot while the tastycake factory's pop-tart and brownie smell made my stomach rumble for breakfast... i love that area, despite the mall that ate up all the cool, creepy abandoned industrial spots there.

"land values highest in the world -- $600 a square foot"

CartLegger: 5th May 2009 - 02:25 GMT

"1/3 of all US clothes manufactured here"--in garment district. Wonder what that number is today?

Peter: 5th May 2009 - 02:48 GMT

at the moment, hot real estate is going for around $6550 per square foot, so a ten or twelvefold change
