In addition to using Google Maps on Wired New York website, I am creating Google Earth placemarks of some places of interest. To start, I made Google Earth placemarks for New York City Bridges, in a similar fashion to Map of New York City Bridges (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/../bridges/map.htm).

The link to the placemarks is available on top of Bridges (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/../bridges/default.htm) page, under heading Google Earth, Open placemarks of bridges in Google Earth (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/../bridges/wired%20new%20york%20-%20bridges.kmz)

You can have flyover of all bridges by expanding "Wired New York - Bridges" item, selecting "Bridges" and pressing F10 button. Clicking on a bridge pushpin creates an info window with link to Wired New York page that contains pictures (most of the time).

Not only can you add placemearks, but you can make buildings too, ones with far more detail than the default scanned massing models.

Nice work on some of those models!

It will be fun to be able to, one day, walk down some of these streets from home!

I just installed Google Earth, the new Beta version, and loaded Edward's placemark files. Does anyone know if there is something similar which shows the main buildings of architectural interest? I can't find one.

Now that Google Earth allows a full search of 3D warehouse that automatically includes 3D buildings made from sketch up, I'm surprised there aren't more New York buildings.

I'm also surprised that developers are not using it as a way to help market their building and its location. Perhaps it will eventually catch on.

Google Maps Street View is simply fantastic. Double click on any blue outlined street for a 360 degree street level view.

Times Square (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=&layer=c&cbll=40.75859,-73.98509&cbp=1,16.9191318327974,0.5,0&ie=UTF8&om=1&ll=40.760366,-73.984584&spn=0.006079,0.01133&z=17)

That's very good. Thanks for sharing it.

Inexplicably much of the area around Grand Central Terminal in Midtown is unavailable for street-view. Very strange considering nearly every other block in Manhattan is covered.
