Lower Manhattan – Did you know?

New York City is a city of neighborhoods and no neighborhood has more spectacular sights, nor more important links to American and NYC history then Lower Manhattan.

By 1775 colonial New York had become a “flourishing city” of perhaps 25,000 souls and some 4,000–5,000 buildings, nearly all of them jammed into the half square mile triangle forming the southern tip of the island.

There was an increasing need for a future street plan for an expanding city. The Manhattan street grid plan of 1811 — both figuratively and literally — defines the city. Let’s take a closer look (G3).
