Marble Hill was originally part of Manhattan Island; but the Harlem River Ship Canal, dug in the late 19th century to improve navigation on the Harlem River, separated it from the remainder of Manhattan, and eventually the part of the original Harlem River channel separating Marble Hill from the Bronx was filled in.
Manhattan Island is recorded as having 20 square miles (51.8 km²) of land, and measures 13 miles (21 km) long and 2.3 miles (3.7 km) wide (at its widest point).

Once completed, the rebuilt Houston Street will be home to nearly 20,000 linear feet of new trunk and distribution water mains, as well as new and restored sewers, street lighting, traffic signals, hydrants, pedestrian ramps, and landscaping (including 101 trees).
Houston Street is one of Manhattan’s busiest crosstown roadways and houses essential utilities beneath its surface.
Community notification, on-street flaggers, temporary ramps and roadway restorations, noise-reducing measures, and low-emission equipment will be used throughout the project, along with worksite and detour signs and bus-stop relocation notices.

 Streetsblog » Rally for a Livable Houston Street
As promised, members of Manhattan Community Board 2 and Transportation Alternatives held a rally yesterday where many elected officials spoke of the need for improved bicycling and pedestrian facilities on the Interstate Highway in our midst, Houston Street.
Houston Street was originally laid out to be as wide as Prince Street, but was expanded to its present Interstate Highway width and feel relatively recently.
Houston's plainness stems from the 1930's, when it was widened to accommodate the digging of the IND subway line, and from the 1960's, when it was laid with a daunting eight lanes of traffic.

 T.A. E-Bulletin
On August 17th, Manhattan's Community Board 2 passed a formal resolution (PDF) "imploring" the DOT to include protected space for cyclists in its plan to reconstruct Houston Street.
The City's Houston Street Reconstruction project is a great opportunity to realize a safe and bikeable Houston Street, a "planned bicycle route" laid out in the City of New York's official 1997 Bicycle Master Plan.
Houston Street is a very important connection in the city's bike network, and protected cycling space will make it safer for the thousands of cyclists who ride the East River bridges and the Hudson River and East River Greenway paths each day to access downtown, and its vibrant neighborhoods.

 14th Street (Manhattan) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The street rivals the size of some of the well-known avenues of the city and is an important business location.
In the past 14th Street was an upscale location, but it lost some of its glamor and status as the city grew northward.
South of 14th, in Greenwich Village and other areas in Lower Manhattan, the grid breaks down – much to the dismay and confusion of newcomers or tourists – and becomes scattered, and then nonexistent below Houston Street.
