Fantastic Beasts on Street View
You can now step back in time and explore the streets of 1920's New York on Google Maps. The Fantastical Beasts Magical Map uses the power of Street View to transport you through space and time to a New York where Muggles and wizards stand on the brink of war.
Using the Fantastical Beast Magical Map you can explore a number of locations from the new Harry Potter prequel movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The movie is set in 1920's New York and the map allows you to step inside and view some of the movie's most important locations using Google's 360 degree panoramic imagery.
There are four scenes in all which you can explore in Street View on this Magical Map. They include the Blind Pig club, the Steen National Bank, the home of the Goldsteins and the Magical Congress of the United States of America.
This isn't the first time that J.K. Rowling's magical world has appeared on Google Maps. Fans of Harry Potter can also explore Diagon Alley on Street View. If you use Google Maps to slip through the secret door in the Leaky Cauldron pub you will find yourself transported to Diagon Alley on Street View.
