While chatting with Robin on the way home from dinner at some friends’ house tonight, we wondered what needed to be demolished to lay down Interstate 787 in Watervliet, New York. Anything? Was it a vibrant neighborhood, or just unusable swampland?
I’m sure someone in the world owns the complete collection of topographical and general reference maps for specific time periods. It wouldn’t take too much effort to scan in all the maps and stitch them together. (Not too much effort, that is, if you’re a big company.)
Feel free to use that idea, Microsoft or Google (or Mapquest, if you’re still around). You don’t need to pay me any royalties. Just tell me what’s under I-787.
