Integrating Paleoecology and Time-lapse Technology in an Elevator

I love when my interests align in a brilliant example of integrating paleolandscape reconstructions, human ecodynamics, and technology for public consumption — this time in the guise of a time-lapse video on an elevator ride.

Five elevators which will be servicing the observatory atop the new 1 World Trade Center (in NYC) will show a 47-second video time-lapsing 515 years of panoramic landscape change along the tip of Manhattan Island. What a brilliant documentary and concept!

55-feet below ground, visitors begin in 1500AD. At 250 feet they reach 1760AD — the British Colonial Era. By the time they reach 1,269 feet above ground, visitors have seen skyline landmarks come and go.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL
