REDEFINING NYC: OLD MAPS NY FREE APP REVIEW New York was not a once a concrete jungle. In a span of several centuries, this metropolis started out as a settlement and grew. Its progress was apparent if you look at the changes throughout the centuries. New York was not even its original name. It started out as New Amsterdam but when the city was taken over by the British, it became New York. If you take a quick look at how it was before and how it was now, you will see that the changes really can be drawn on a map. And that is what you get when you take a look at the Old Maps: NY free version. This is made up of several dozen maps dedicated to the most beloved city of the US. If you like maps and history, this app will definitely appeal to you. From the Castello Plan to the modern political and geographical map of the city, you will see subtle and obvious changes. You will also see how flooding, additions and subtractions all across the city transformed the look that we are accustomed to seeing right now. You will see the landfills and how from a seemingly narrow Manhattan settlement, it has expanded and literally doubled in size. The landfills really transformed the terrain of New York. If you are a New Yorker or just curious as to how the city looks like before as well as how the underground of the city looks like, this app is a fantastic free tool that will give you some very clear visual insights. The maps are high resolution and you will definitely love to share this with kids at your family so that you can see how 4 centuries or more can transform a city.
