What was the era that was going on when New York got rebulit as Medeval looking castles?  And why the castles?  It almost looked like there was another dark age going on.  Any thoughts on this?

I think that was in there so that the future wouldn't be TOO futuristic.  If anyone wanted to complain that technology or whatever should be far more advanced in a thousand years (which it undoubtedly would be), they could just be pointed at the second dark age to explain away the discrepancy.  The URL line just reinforces this.

Edit: This may or may not have been mentioned in the commentary, but it's been a while since I watched it on DVD.

awww...just kidding with you...but seriously folks.That makes a lot of sence.

Why castles you ask?
Because that was the only building materials they had...they only had books with pictures of castles as housing...they wanted to live simpler?

I'm actually more curious about what happened to this city when it got destroyed. Old New York's ruins are still in very good tact for a city that was completely destroyed by aliens - what the hell happened to the second one?

In this case the producers probably never came up with any kind of answers for this.  The whole bit is just a funny reference to "The Time Machine".

Castles are building materials..?
Oh well. The only explanation of the ONY ruins I can think of was that the aliens who destroyed it could have roofed it and covered the roof with soil so the trees could grow there. And it has been asked before. Nobody found the answer, so: Consistency joke/slip-up.

History goes in cycles, or something.  No mistake is ever too great not to be repeated in the future.

Except tank tops.  And the 1980s.
