Wonderful app for history, architecture, urban exploration!

A fantastic app for exploring NYC -- the best I've found for those interested in the city's history and architecture. It was great even before the latest update, providing a informative summaries -- and map of -- architectural landmarks and easy way of locating those near one's current location. The update makes it even better, integrating Google Street view images. Would love to see the developer create similar apps for Chicago, Boston, DC and other cities.

A must-have app.

Whether you're just visiting or a resident of NYC, this is a must-have app for your iPhone or iPad. An in-depth history about a vast array of NYC's most iconic (and even the unheralded) buildings makes this app a truly useful guide and tool.
