In Historicalness.com’s last post for 2011 (see below), we highlighted the terrific exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York entitled “The Greatest Grid: The Master Plan of Manhattan, 1811-2011”.

Given the massive influence and readership of this blog, we don’t think it’s any surprise to see in today’s New York Times a favorable review of the same exhibit entitled “The Grid at 200: Lines That Shaped Manhattan“.  Sadly, no credit or attribution was assigned to us in the article.

The Times even used a photo that caught Historicalness.com’s eye as we wandered through the gallery.

Coincidence?  We (prefer to) think not.
