With all the data that Google has in Google Maps and Google Earth, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see that Google has used all that data to come up with a 3D city effect of New York City. So now, instead of navigating boring city maps from the top-down, you can literally zoom into the city and move around at ground level, getting a feel of the city from a pedestrian’s view. Currently only a few cities in the world have received that treatment such as London, Cape Town and New York City. So maybe you can skip buying that plane ticket to fly to London for a holiday, now that Google can bring you there, eh? Check out the video after the jump.
