Google helping tourists around New York City

New York City, along with Google, launched a new website that is designed to help tourists and residents find their way around the city, and plan their days out. As a recent first-time visitor to the Big Apple, a site like this would have actually been quite useful.

New York City, along with Google, launched a new website that is designed to help tourists and residents find their way around the city, and plan their days out. As a recent first-time visitor to the Big Apple, a site like this would have actually been quite useful.

Mayor Bloomberg says he hopes that "nycgo.com becomes the official online resource for tourists and residents looking for an activity or a place to go". The site appears to have lots of information, and can definitely direct people in the right direction.

There seems to be a market for specific localized information sites like this one, and it makes sense for companies like Google to try and be a piece of them -- what do you think?
