The above photo is interactive. Drag the yellow handle in the middle to reveal more or less of the before or after image. Alternatively, you can simply click anywhere on the image to move the slider automatically.

Destined to undergo seismic changes over the next few decades, Delancey Street is apparently one of the last streets in lower Manhattan to be discovered by developers. With a direct link to Brooklyn over the Williamsburg Bridge, it's rather surprising that Delancey has maintained its state for as long as it has.
