Today on Far Future Horizons we are going to embark on a voyage into the past and visit a very different and utterly alien Manhattan Island.
We are going to visit a prehistoric and wild city that never sleeps - Prehistoric New York.
The Big Apple is the ultimate twenty-first century city, packed with a population of over eight million people and overgrown with skyscrapers.
But, before this land of glass steel concrete and asphalt came into existence,
was home to alien landscapes and inhabited by a menagerie of strange creatures
stretching back over many millennia. New York City
Eight ton mastodons once walked and trampled everything in their path on what is today
Fifth Avenue, and a sea turtle bigger
than a compact car swam directly over Midtown . Manhattan
Gigantic sea scorpions were once part of prehistoric Coney Island’s freak show, and some of the world's first dinosaurs roamed where the
Giants play football today, and the "king
of the hill" in Frank Sinatra's old song was once Tyrannosaurus Rex. New York
The Big Apple still bears the scars of its ancient past, a time when it was buried under a titanic glacier, and it also sits on the site of a two million year old volcanic catastrophe.
New York City
today enjoys views of the Atlantic Ocean, it
was once in the middle of a vast desert continent. No matter the era, has always been
the centre of action throughout the turbulent and tumultuous history of our
planet. New York
