1987 Charlotte vs. 2007 Charlotte
Posted on 24 Apr 2009 by Justin Ruckman
I used one of the images from the post a couple days ago and compared it with a Google Earth 3D shot as best as I could position it. The satellite and 3D models Google Earth have are still a little outdated: no sight of the Duke Energy Center or the Southend I-277 realignment anywhere. That means you’re looking at a pre-recession uptown here, folks. Those were the days.
