The Changing City: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
In the mid-19th century, diarist and New York City Mayor Philip Hone said, “The whole of New York is rebuilt about once in 10 years.” The dynamic nature of the City’s landscape means that no two Manhattan neighborhoods are the same. Even within neighborhoods there are differences, sometimes on a block-by-block basis. Some swaths might seem to have been built at the same time and cut from the same cloth, but the average neighborhood has developed over time.
