We live with John Randel

This New York Times interactive will chew up your time this morning and would certainly use up all 20 of the free monthly clicks the NYT plans to give you once they convert to subscription. This is a fascinating superimposition of the modern streetscape with older maps. And be sure to use the "street openings" slider. (This article recalls the Baad Lamb's post of a year ago about an oddly angled building in Hells' Kitchen. A commenter solved that mystery.)

  1. if you haven't, I would recommend 'Parrot & Olivier' as reading. It has a lot of the romance of Manhattan in the 1830s in it.
