This has nothing to do with dentistry, it is just very cool in a geeky kind of way. Using old photos from last century developer Dan Vanderkam collaborated with the New York Public Library to plot all the old photos from the Photographic Views of New York City, 1870s-1970s collection on an interactive map. It is kinda’ like Google street view from 1890.
