Mannahatta: New York City in 1609

The Mannahatta and Welikia Projects of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) research what New York City was like in 1609. Depicting what New York was like before it was a city, the map app allows you to navigate the landscape as it was in 1609. The flora and fauna of 1609 for each city block is described and can be compared to what the block is like today.

Launch the application here.
