Whoa: Sociologist and photographer Camilo José Vergara, Rutgers University, the Ford Foundation‘s money and Tender‘s design have come up with one hell of an interactive urban studies website. In three traditionally-blighted U.S. cities—Richmond, California; Camden, New Jersey; and Harlem in Manhattan—Invincible Cities allows you to zoom around and see how the same locations have changed over thirty years. Additionally, the site supports user comments under any of the photos—visitors can augment the already-impressive spread of information by notating it in personal detail. It’s like cruising Street View in a time machine.
