Google today updated its Maps service with the new Street View imagery for 9/11 Memorial, Central park and various neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Sandy of New York. The company also stated that it has collaborated with the non-profit Historypin to create a shared collection of images and stories highlighting the impact of the Hurricane and the progression of recovery.

“As a lifelong New Yorker, I’ve seen the city change a lot over the years,” Susan Molinaru, VP of Public Policy at Google said. “This collection showcases some of what has changed – but also what hasn’t: in spite of the challenges, New York City continues to be a symbol of the American dream, an inspiration to people around the globe and an ongoing source of pride for New Yorkers like me.”
