OldNYC Lets You Explore 1800s New York City Through a Google StreetView-Like Interface

OldNYC is an amazing project from Brooklyn web developer Dan Vanderkam and a team of others in which they map out the locations captured in vintage New York City photographs dating back to 1870. The team at OldNYC has created a really interesting iOS app under the same name to help you browse these photos by location on the go in a Google StreetView-like interface, from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

OldNYC is the best way to explore more than 100 years of historical photos of New York City. Discover what was there at thousands of locations across Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island.
