Manhattan, 2009 and 1609

English explorer Henry Hudson set foot on an island called Mannahatta 400 years ago. The Manhatta Project has recreated the island as it appeared in 1609, with forests, wetlands, and a vast array of wildlife. See views of Manhattan side-by-side with a computer recreation of what it looked like before it became a city. Link -via mental_floss

The two plumes of smoke reminded me of the attack on September 11, 2001. My uncle was in the WTC at the time but got out ok. I am so thankful that we no longer have to worry about such a tragic event happening anymore with our new President at the helm. If we had only known . . . but now the future will be better.

Danoso, that's a sweeping judgment call based on one innocuous comment I made. I'm neither Luddite nor treehugger, and I was simply commenting upon the differences between the photos. Keep your negative energy to yourself.
