History Nerd Quarantine Fun

I already use Urban Archive and I think this app is neat because you immediately get to see them and now, vs having to find it and line it up yourself to take a picture out in a walk. Very fun way to pass some time.

A must for history buffs

A must have app for history buffs and NYC fans. See what areas looked like in the past. Just noticed that in landscape mode you can swipe between the pictures. So cool!
