Google maps amazes me. They keep doing more and more. Have you seen the street views you can do now? Here’s my favorite bagel store and the park I take my dog to every day. (you can grab to do a 360). A few years before this was all possible, I was amazed by this book that came out. It’s the entire city of New York from above- page after page of full bleed photos. The pictures are close enough to see the shapes of small buildings (taken from 5,500 ft up). I really like this book and having big printed photographs of what I can see blurry on google. Some of the pages almost look like paintings, with the green gray water tones and snaking highways. They are really gorgeous. I also like finding where I live, my parents live and everyone I know lives. It’s a fun challenge to do without using the key in the back. I grew up on this weird island in the Bronx called City Island and whenever people ask “What? Where is that?” I can take out this trusty book as a quick reference (that’s a picture of City Island on the home page). You can buy a copy of this book here.
