Seneca Village Online
This site has a host of historical features that allow interaction with the history of the land and people that made up the pre-Civil War village of Seneca, previously on the upper West Side. It had been home to many free blacks and some Irish and was razed to build Central Park in 1857. Lots of good historical links too.
SepiaTown is a new historical image website that gets people directly involved in their local history by uploading and mapping historical images from any location around the globe. These images can then be viewed on any computer (mobile version coming soon) for a truly interactive experience.

Because tactical media practices (see definitions) are inherently responsive, interactive, and constantly evolving, we chose a format that would make it possible to capture the specificity of such developments in different political and cultural contexts. We have also ta...

The Bronx is Beautiful
In 2006, leading New York realtor Barbara Corcoran called the South Bronx "the last housing frontier close to New York City" and put it on her list of the top five places to buy in America.
