Want to see F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Valley of Ashes" that he describes in Gatsby?

At the top you'll see icons - click on the one that looks like a camera.

Move the slider to 1924.

Go to where Flushing Meadows Park is today.

That's it! It's right there! Amazing, isn't it?!?!

Or for more fun, go to where LaGuardia is today and move the slider back and forth. You can watch it disappear and reappear.
