LES Pre-Gold Rush: A Map
For some reason, Google Maps has decided against updating its satellite feed of NYC. And glad are we they didn’t. The current map dates back at least a few years, so it’s cool to see a static image of recent city history. Especially for an area undergoing such massive structural and cultural shifts that the whole community is being displaced. This map is a veritable time capsule, perhaps opened too soon.
You will notice thumbtacks on select areas with new buildings/demolition.
