There's a lot more to New York City than what's meets the eye.

While for some of us it may be difficult to imagine a New York before there was Madison Square Garden or a Starbucks on every corner, there is, in fact, a long history of city life before these things.

For example, did you know that the High Bridge is the oldest bridge in NYC? 

Or that the Bronx used to be a massive farmland? 

It's crazy to think about all of the changes that have occurred in the Northern-most borough throughout the years.
