Densification vs. De-densification of Manhattan

This map (posted at Urbanization Project) compares census tract densities in Manhattan between 1910 and 2010 (via Aaron M. Renn from Urbanophile). And some people think Manhattan is too dense now.

Of course it was totally different times (i.e. smaller car fleet and less transportation infrastructure).
