Upper Manhattan?

Why is this called Upper Manhattan if it is showing the Singer building?

[Because it's really tall. - Dave]

CIB

Also under construction in this view is the City Investing Building (the white building on the left) of Francis H. Kimball. This building rose and fell together with its taller next-door neighbor, the Singer Tower. Kimball was also the designer of the United States Realty Building (1906-1907), seen at the far right in this view. What a fantastic picture, Dave!

Ground Zero

Site of Liberty Plaza and Ground Zero today. Good post since Bin Laden is gone with the wind now.
