Thread: New York-Amsterdam Photo Comparisons

    Default New York-Amsterdam Photo Comparisons

    Not sure if this site has been noted here before. It's now defunct, but remains open for perusal. Essentially it consists of photo comparisons between different aspects of the two cities, New York and its original namesake. For example, taxi shows both a yellow New York cab and a red Amsterdam one. The concept seems childishly ridiculous, but the entire collection makes for some interesting cultural insights and observations.

    Just FYI, this website was posted in another thread: New York City Websites. I enjoy the photo comparison.

    I think their "experiment" is over. Maybe they decided it wasn't worth the cost of keeping it online.
