Metro ARchive

Metro ARchive Concept

Metro ARchive enables users to view historic New York City streets as they were a century ago

Description

The Metro ARchive is a project developed by Sammy Levin and McCoy Zhu under the mentorship of the New York Times Research and Development Team for the NYC Media Lab Spatial Computing Challenge. It is an immersive AR experience that enables users to view historic New York City streets as they were a century ago. The app is currently a functional prototype, but we are on the lookout for opportunities to expand it into a more accessible experience.
