For most New Yorkers, 2007's I Am Legend was part sci-fi horror and part real estate fantasy. Share 600 square feet with three roommates long enough and eventually a mansion in post-apocalyptic Manhattan doesn't sound too bad. While the film gave us a vision of what New York might look like after everyone is gone, one picture is giving Twitter users a glimpse of what it looked like before we got here.

Back then, Manhattan held no economic value for the Dutch who traded it for virgin gold rich junglesof Guyana, South America. If only they had a crystal ball back then 😃— Ravi Ram (@RaviRambronx) December 5, 2017
