Watch One New York City Block Grow Year By Year

New, 2 comments

This is neat: Zach van Schouwen has made the above video animating the history of one New York City block, Eldridge Street between Stanton and Rivington. On his website, Schouwen has a more elaborate history of the block starting in 1795, when it was Delancey Farm. Watch the block get leveled, built, and rebuilt year after year, and click on each building for a mini-history.
