Updated Google Satellite Map Of Roosevelt Island Provides Great Aerial Views Including Southpoint Park Construction & New Riverwalk Buildings

Received the following message from Jason a couple of weeks ago.

I'm not sure if this really counts as a tip but it was of interest to me...

Google maps (maps.google.com) finally updated their satellite views of RI. The view it had been using up to today still had the Riverwalk buildings under construction. I first noticed the changes because those things (transports?) docked across the river are now very visible from above.

Is "Isla de Roosevelt" a place or is it just a quirk label?

You might see more things of interest than me.

It's a great map. Play around with it and check out the construction at Southpoint Park on the southern end of the Island.

This futuristic map is very interesting but how many years will it take before we get the subway station on Rd 3 at the southern end of the hospital (great for the hospital workers and park visitors)
