Cool new aerial photos of 1924 NYC

New York City just released a cool new feature on their maps page. You can look at aerial photos from 1924, 2006 and 2008. It's pretty amazing how much the waterfront has changed. It's also pretty amazing how much of the built environment in the boroughs looks like it hasn't changed much. Of course, that is a baseball field on the Columbia campus. The other photo is of Lou Gerhig playing in that field in 1922 when he was a student.
