Stellar A+

If you are even remotely interested in NYC architecture, or history in general, this app is a must-have.

Fluid user interface, excellent mini articles written about each building, complete with links to the official Landmark documents, and Google-linked up-to-date street-view adjustable images.

Hundreds of NYC landmarks, and hundreds of stories!

Fun app, a bit dated though

This is a neat app if you’re one of those people who walk around NYC and wonder about the history of the various buildings you see. Map function hones in on where you are, building photos make it easy to identify buildings.
However, the info and narratives are a bit dated. In some cases I’ve found facts that are not accurate and have not been for over a decade.

Great, Simple

Great landmarks app, supports iPhone and iPad both well.

Feature requests: Wikipedia links, and a way to “check off” already-visited landmarks.
