Bemoaning the densification of NYC is a pastime for some, and this collaged image should provide enough fodder to last a while. Posted on Facebook by New York City Lovers, it shows the evolution of the downtown Manhattan waterfront from 1876 to 2013. You can see the beginning of the Brooklyn Bridge, which wasn't completed until 1883; the skyscraper boom in full swing in 1932; a considerably more crowded skyline, including the World Trade Center towers, in 1988; and an almost-current shot of the vista, with 1 WTC drawn in.
