Considering the age of United States they must be very happy when they find something... and RealVooDoo, in cities like Rome you must do that way. I read that excavating near the Colosseum to make the subway archeologists found a sculpture of a horse, the only one of the Colosseum found. You must live with that, and be proud.

The first city plenty of skyscrapers was the classic Rome, although nobody knows that. It was the New York of the first century.

Edit: I have listened in a spanish radio a spanish foreign correspondent that lives in New York, speaking about this ship and saying something about Gangs of New York and archeology in Rome... I swear is truth

I've done that and I didn't need lunch. Manhattan really isn't that big.

By a quick glance at Google maps it looks like a trip of about eight kilometers, pretty much the distance from where I live to the city center of Oldenburg, which I have walked before - took me about one and a half hours last time if I recall correctly. I don't think I'm hyporexic enough to be unable to go 90 minutes without a lunch.

Manhattan as a city center is massive but its not big compared to sprawls but if you go all the way from staten island to the end of the bronx then thats massive

Manhattan, I believe, is smaller in square miles than the city of Baltimore. It may be long north to south, but it is quite narrow.

The discovery of the boat is similar to something that happened here when the Gallery at Harborplace was built. A pier, dating to the late 1600's, was unearthed at where is now 2 blocks inland.

Manhattan is the second smallest borough I believe. It looks small on those pictures because they're downtown pics, and that is, along with the northern tip of the island, the smallest of width. Walking in Manhattan can be tiring, cause while it's not wide, it's quite a long island.

And great progress. I can't wait for this to give impact on the downtown area. I do agree that the downtown looks relatively "flat" and "small" without WTC, but I'm sure this tower will more than make up for it

typical new yorker, getting competitive over square milage now?

The natural history of NYC amazes me, how it went from wilderness to the huge skyline of today in much less than half a centurary. makes you wonder how it will look in another 500 years? the show "life after people" gets the imagination running.

This site is moving along nicely now, I can't wait to see it when i'm there next Summer. I imagine 1WTC is much larger IRL than what it looks in some of these images. Will probably be 800+ feet tall and half clad by next June too!

A good look at the future of NYC would be a brief scene in the the movie The 5th Element. Check out the scene where the space plane takes off and look for the Statue of Liberty! It's awesome.

Pause this video at 4 seconds
