I’ve always been a fan of Rochester Subway content which looks at our city from a different angle. I thought I might contribute something in turn, that looks at our city from an aerial angle.
I noticed this week that Google Earth had updated its imagery to include snapshots from as early as a month ago. It is now possible to follow a lot of tangible changes that have been going on in the city for a while. I put together a handful of before-and-afters that I thought were interesting (to me anyway). Take a look at the album and see if you can spot the differences…
Filling the Inner Loop
Citygate and Interstate 390
Golisano Children’s Hospital
Dredging at the Port of Rochester
RIT Gene Polisseni Center
Mid Town Plaza – Street View
Did you know you can also view historical images using Google Street View? Here’s a timelapse of Main Street at Midtown Plaza from the ground. Some pretty dramatic changes are happening around us every day if we just take a minute to notice.
