Urban Layers: Explore Manhattan’s Urban Fabric

by Paul Knight. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

The code ninjas at Morphocode have created an incredible, “interactive map…that explores the structure of Manhattan’s urban fabric. The map lets you navigate through historical fragments of the borough that have been preserved and are currently embedded in its densely built environment. The rigid archipelago of building blocks has been mapped as a succession of structural episodes starting from 1765.”
I have to say, it’s easy to get lost in this; before you view the map, make sure you don’t have any other commitments for the next couple of hours.
