Searching New York with Google Maps

Look into NYC

Look into NYC uses data from a number of different NYC agencies to provide a Google Maps based search portal to public and private establishments in New York.

Currently the application lets you search for Computer Centers, Electronic Stores, Hiking, Horseback, Ice Skating, Nature Centers, Recreational Centers, Sidewalk Cafes, Pools, Tennis Courts, Queens Library Branches and a few other categories as well.

Users can search the map by borough or by specific address. Users can also refine the radius within which they wish to search. The results are then displayed on a map and listed in the map sidebar.

Each point of information displayed on the map includes options to view it in Street View and to get directions.
