Watch Manhattan Grow Over 400 Years

Manhattan has changed substantially over the past 400 years.

With the millions of people who live there and the many more who commute to the island on a daily basis, Manhattan has become a metropolis of concrete, culture, and big-city life.

Angie’s List has created an animated map that shows just how much Manhattan has changed over the last 400 years.
