If you ever felt nostalgic from piecing together old photos with locations on Google Maps then you will thoroughly enjoy this map.
The New York Public Library has introduced a new interactive map project that takes its massive digitized archive of historical photos and plots them on a map. The project is called OldNYC – Mapping historical photos from the NYPL. You can click on each dot on the map to see a variety of vintage photos taken in that area years ago.
The announcement was made earlier today by the data team over at NYPL.
It’s finally here! http://t.co/YxohiZK2ec
