Explore Vintage Photos of New York, Plotted on Google Maps

It’s not uncommon to wonder what a street looked like in centuries past, and if you’re in New York City, finding that out has gotten a whole lot easier. OldNYC is a project which plots historic data from the New York Public Library collection of photographs on top of Google Maps for a rich and revealing look at the city’s changing appearance from the 1870s to the 1970s.
