Google Street View just keeps getting better and better. While we already know the first-person look with Street View has already walked nearly every street of New York City, today they published a few new areas that are historic to everyone. Not only that, but these iconic locations show the heart, spirit, and strength of our nation and the greatest city in New York.

Today Google revealed new Street View imagery of three stunning locations of the Big Apple. Those being the 9/11 Memorial, Central Park, and the neighborhoods that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Not only can you walk down the streets and see the mess from Hurricane Sandy, but for those wanting to virtually visit the 9/11 Memorial can now do so as well.

Google added a wonderful moving tribute to the World Trade Center site and memorial, with stunning panoramic views of both the north and the south pools. Using their technology they also got so close that Street View users will be able to see and read victims’ names that have been engraved along both pools, to pay their respects. It's a wonderful site and tribute, so thanks Google.

Then, for those who haven't been lucky enough to enjoy New York City and Central Park, Google has you covered with that too. Taking the street view Trekker through the park and down paths most visitors would never normally go. The video above is a nice little preview (oh and check out 53 seconds) of the entire park. They have lesser known areas covered too.

From Central Park and the 9/11 Memorial, all the way to the Galapagos Islands Google's been hard at work with Street View, and we love it. See more at the link below.
