Overview

Since New Amsterdam became New York in 1664, constant change and development has been its driving force. Today, it is America's densest urban environment and most vital city, boasting one of the most recognizable skylines in the world.
- New York Then and Now places today's post 9/11 cityscape within the context of history, reflecting the changing and enduring aspects of life in the Big Apple.
- Remarkable past-and-present photographs showcase Manhattan's development and the amazing architecture that defines the city. See side-by-side images of the lavish Waldorf-Astoria, Radio City Music Hall, Union Square, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Penn Station, Empire State Building, and the Chrysler Building.
