Google Earth Brooklyn

I've show some of my Google Earth project on here already but have been mainly focusing on Manhattan. Brooklyn and the other boroughs often get the short end of the stick when they are mapped out either in tourists guides or online mapping services. Now we'll cross the Brooklyn Bridge and see a little bit of 3D Brooklyn. (Besides if you're going to map New York in 3D you should include all five boroughs eventually.)

Housing projects located in between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge in the neighborhood known as DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

Further along we come across Borough Hall which looks kind of lonely without the rest of the 3D building layer turned on. More textured buildings will out Downtown Brooklyn in the coming weeks and months.

Finally, we end up in Prospect Park or rather at Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Public Library.

More Google Earth New York (Brooklyn) next time.

BTW, check out YouCity's 3D map of New York, the team is beginning to map out Brooklyn. You can view it here.
