Google Earth's NYC Gets Photo-Realistic Makeover

Maximum PC Staff

Google’s latest build of their extremely popular earth-browsing application, Google Earth features a total visual overhaul on the Big Apple, complete with photorealistic 3D models of most of Manhattan Island.

Go ahead and update your copy of Google Earth and fly yourself to New York City. Once you’ve turned on the 3D building layer tilt your view so that you can check out the buildings! If you’re feeling saucy, you can even boot in the up game flight-sim and pretend you’re one of the Blue Angels at San Francisco’s Fleet Week!

With any luck, this is a showing of what’s to come. As a native Seattleite and previous San Franciscan, I’m anxious to see my two favorite cities come to life in this fashion.
