My favorite memories of NYC are from when it was just a single house on a hill.

That was when NYC stood for the New York Cabin?

I see people in LA already had problems finding parking in 1870.

Weird 8th & Market looks way different.

The Cincinnati Public Library owns some amazing old daguerreotypes of the city.  The University of Rochester has zoomable digital recreations of them available online.

From the CPL description, via University of Rochester:
Owned by the Cincinnati Public Library, it is one of the most astounding examples of daguerreotype (the first known photographic method) in existence today. The clarity of each of its eight copper panels is equivalent to a 140,000-megapixel digital image, thousands of times better than high-end commercially available digital cameras today.
