Modeled by Dr. Eric W. Sanderson of the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Welikia Project is a cool exploration of what Manhattan looked like before it was a City. This side-by-side view shows one of the renderings next to a current aerial photograph of the borough, allowing you to see exactly how the shape of the island has changed over the past 400 years.
