Woke up this morning to discover new Google Earth satellite imagery of Manhattan, complete with the fully-pedestrianized & mural'd Times Square. Great light too, Midtown usually looks so dark on G-Earth. Three cheers for Janette.
UPDATE: Just realized you can also get great views of a few other ped plazas. Click the thumbnails for full-sizers:
Union Square (with Greenmarket in full-swing!):
(Also: whoever gets rid of these #$&#% borders that magically insert themselves around images on this blog when I've tried everything I can think of to turn them off wins a prize.)
