3D Virtual Earth imagery added for New York City

Up until today, the most notable absence from Virtual Earth’s catalog of 3D imagery was, without a doubt, New York City.  Fortunately, Microsoft just pushed their brand new imagery for NYC live to local.live.com.

In addition to the new NYC imagery, eight other cities have also been added.  Those added include:

Austin, Texas
Cape Coral, Florida
Cincinnati, Ohio
Indianapolis, Indiana
(too bad this one wasn’t in time for the 500 this weekend)
Northampton, England
Savanna, Georgia
Tampa, Florida

I’ll leave you with a couple of shots of Lady Liberty.  Thanks to Brandon LeBlanc for the screencaps since my internet was acting shaky at the time.
