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.

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.

"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
