Following an April trip to NYC, Switzerland-based hobby photographer Cora Drimus compiled a compelling series of then and now images which, quite literally, show the rise of the city over the past century. Drimus told Business Insider that making a video of New York would be "even more fun" than the three she's previously compiled of Romania. As BI playfully points out, if photographs are worth a thousand words, Drimus's shots speak volumes about the city and its history.
