Architecture + Urban Design: The Grid at 200: Lines That Shaped Manhattan by Michael Kimmelman: “..Not so long ago, all things considered, the intersection of Broadway and 84th Street didn’t exist; the area was farmland. “The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811-2011,” now at the Museum of the City of New York, unearths that 1879 picture of the Brennan Farm among other historic gems. The show celebrates the anniversary of what remains not just a landmark in urban history but in many ways the defining feature of the city..”  Excellent article by Michael Kimmelman in The New York Times.  Olde New York..
