old + new worlds. "Manhattan 1609 vs. 2009: Natural Wonder to Urban Jungle," by Markley Boyer

Such as the fact the great island of Manhattan is an Island. Try and procure your September 2009 copy of National Geographic: MANHATTAN 1609 vs. 2009: Natural Wonder to Urban Jungle by Peter Miller and poke around the incredible amazing The Mannahatta Project Organization site. Perhaps my rantings about the new millenium  rantings hardly grasp the landscape and sheer, vast nature of the land (in 1609).  Truly amazing to stop and think about.
