Namesake Towns on Street View

While searching for Street View of Camden, North London this morning I accidentally ended up taking a virtual stroll around the derelict streets of Camden, New Jersey instead. I was struck by the obvious differences in fortunes of the trendy London neighborhood and its run-down namesake in America.

This got me interested in exploring some other towns and their namesakes on Street View. I've put together a few juxtapositions of these Street View images from towns with common names.

Twin Cities places two Street View images from two towns which share a name side-by-side. Among the more interesting comparisons is the hustle and bustle of Times Square in New York with the quaint Shambles in York.
