Time machine: travel to 1924 — from above


Long story short, from yesterday's New York Times editorial : "Thanks to the city’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications — and its innovative NYCityMap — it is now possible to revisit 1924 from above."

"Just follow these simple instructions: At the NYCityMap Web site, click on the camera at the top of the page and move the slider beneath it back to 1924. The interactive city of 2010 fades away to reveal an aerial view of the five boroughs assembled from photographs that have been digitally stitched together."

Above, the largest intersection is that of 5th Avenue and 57th Street, in 1924.
