The Walking New York App will show you old photographs of wherever you are standing in Brooklyn or Queens. It locates the block you are on and selects old photos of buildings on that site or nearby. Created by the La Guardia and Wagner Archives, La Guardia Community College, CUNY, the app features selections from the New York City Housing Authority Photograph Collection (housed at the La Guardia and Wagner Archives), Queens Public Library, and Brooklyn Historical Society’s Photograph Collection. Users can also browse the map to find all of our provided locations, as well as share photos from their locations to Facebook and Twitter. Currently supporting the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, we will be adding Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island, so users can find themselves fully “Walking New York.”

Is this app active?
Has three images , a map and that seems to be it. I was hoping it would be a great source of info for us since we just moved to Queens.😕
Use your GPS or the map icon in the center of the top row
This app contains over 2,300 photos, most of which show historical photos of the outer boroughs. Obviously the previous comment did have the GPS turned on. Duh!
Keep on crashing
Every time I try to open the app. It keep on crashing. 😫
